Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal is set to miss up to two months of action after picking up a serious knee injury in training this week.
Carvajal was called up for international duty with Luis Enrique’s Spain side for their games against Switzerland, Ukraine and the Netherlands in the coming weeks, but he will now miss out.

Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane is now expected to put his faith in the returning Alvaro Odriozola as Carvajal’s replacement at right back in the coming months.
Experienced defender Nacho Fernandez can also fill in at full back, alongside utility pair Eder Militao and Lucas Vazquez, as covering options for Zidane.
