Real Madrid injury update: Star summer signing available for UCL match

Real Madrid fans will be relieved to find out that the squad’s defensive injury woes are not as extreme as previously thought. It has now been confirmed by the club’s medical team that star summer signing David Alaba only suffered a minor knock on his knee, and he will be fit enough to travel with the team as they face Shakhtar Donetsk in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League next Tuesday.

Carlo Ancelotti found himself in a worrying situation earlier this week, with the Austrian thought to have been badly injured. However, Marca described it as a “false alarm,” with the medical team convinced that the central defender will be able to return to action in a few days.

The squad returned to training on Thursday after the international break, and Real Madrid’s doctors took the opportunity to evaluate the players and their fitness levels. Apart from the good news on Alaba, Brazil international Eder Militao also raised an alarm after appearing to be injured when he limped out of the national team’s match against Colombia a few days ago.
