The November international break hasn’t been kind to Los Blancos, as the injuries are starting to pick up
The results have been satisfactory on the pitch, but not all is well in Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have suffered two major injuries and will go without two crucial starters for the whole of the 2023-24 season due to near-identical ligament tears. Thibaut Courtois was first, rupturing his ACL in training. Eder Militao did the same less than a week later, completing only 50 minutes of Madrid’s season.
And things have only gotten worse in recent days. Madrid are now without three presumptive starters due to various knocks, and could have to wait until January for the return of all of them.
Still, the results on the pitch have been excellent. Los Blancos are narrowly behind high-flyers Girona in La Liga, but seem poised to strike should the Catalunyan side slip.
