Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga suffered a knee sprain during Wednesday’s training session with the French national team and will need to miss around two months with this injury, according to a medical report published by the French Football Federation.

Apparently, even though it looks like Camavinga escaped major structural damage on his knee, he will still be out for a while. The French player will return to Madrid today and he will get a scan which will reveal the extent of his injury. Real Madrid are hoping to confirm that he indeed avoided a ligament injury.

If Camavinga does miss the next two months with this knee injury, he won’t be available in the following games.

  1. Cádiz - Real Madrid
  2. Real Madrid - Napoli
  3. Real Madrid - Granada
  4. Betis - Real Madrid
  5. Union Berlin - Real Madrid
  6. Real Madrid - Villarreal
  7. Alavés - Real Madrid

Considering that Aurelien Tchouameni is also out, coach Carlo Ancelotti will have to find a new defensive midfielder.
