Real Madrid have confirmed that full-back Dani Carvajal is carrying a muscle injury, after he was made to come off during their 1-0 loss to Russian side CSKA Moscow in the Champions League this week.
The 26-year-old Spaniard started the match for Real on Tuesday but was forced to exit the match in the 43rd minute.
The Champions League holders have now released an update on the defender’s status.
Carvajal will be absent when Madrid
Madrid, meanwhile, have gotten off to their worst start in recent history in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, and things haven’t been helped by their growing injury list either.
