Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal completed Wednesday’s training session with the rest of the players who haven’t traveled to represent their countries during this FIFA break and has recovered from the knee injury he suffered on his right knee. Therefore, Carvajal will be available for Real Madrid’s next games after the break, two away matches against Villarreal and Inter.
Carvajal’s return is crucial for Madrid given that Los Blancos have been playing without a natural right-back for the last month, ever since both Carvajal and Odriozola got injured. Nacho filled in but also picked up an injury in El Clasico, forcing Zinedine Zidane to trust Lucas Vazquez for that position.
Considering how poor Real Madrid’s defense has looked lately, Carvajal’s return should give the team a huge boost of confidence and quality. He will now have more than a week to improve his form and conditioning so that he can be 100% ready to face Villarreal and Inter.
