Carvajal out for three weeks

Dani Carvajal will be out for the next three weeks after sustaining an ankle injury during Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

The right-back lasted only 42 minutes at the Vicente Calderon, having been caught by Oliver Torres, and tests showed a “strong twist” to his right ankle, specificially in the “peroneal tendons”.

Carvajal has since been replaced in the Spain squad for matches against Luxembourg and Ukraine by Villarreal’s Mario Gaspar.

His injury also leaves Madrid with only one recognised right-back in Alvaro Arbeloa as Danilo remains sidelined with a foot setback.
