If this Sunday’s Clasico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, which won 2-1 at Camp Nou, will not be remembered, to say the least, it is because there had damage. On the side of the Blaugranas, Frenkie de Jong played injured before worsening the state of his concern with the hamstrings, while Ansu Fati, hit in the knee, had to go out against the Merengues and that Ronald Koeman will still have to compose without Pedri. For Carlo Ancelotti’s gang, bad news has become rarer.
The Cadena SER All the same we learn that Federico Valverde, who returned in the 72nd minute before leaving the 91st against Barça, will be absent from the field for about ten days. The 23-year-old Uruguayan midfielder, affected in a duel with Gerard Piqué, suffers from a sprained ligaments in his right knee, according to Spanish media. He should miss 3 games (Osasuna and Elche in Liga, Shakhtar Donetsk in C1) and his return is expected on November 6, against Rayo Vallecano. Note that Thibaut Courtois, who hurt himself on a clearance against the Catalans, has passed reassuring exams that have ruled out any injury. Real Madrid have not yet communicated on this subject.
