The club were already missing nine senior players – Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Lucas Vázquez, Toni Kroos, Alvaro Odriozola, Fede Valverde, Eden Hazard, Eder Militao and Rodrygo Goes – for Tuesday night’s La Liga win over Getafe.

The Brazilian thrived in a more advanced role for Los Blancos in the 2-0 win and he even provided the assist for Ferland Mendy – with whom he usually competes for the left-back slot – to double Madrid’s advantage on the night.
However, he has suffered a muscular injury in the left soleus and now must face a spell on the sidelines.
