With the international break underway, Real Madrid have announced another injury blow to one of their key players.

Real Madrid have been hit with another injury setback as Eduardo Camavinga has a right knee injury.

The 21-year-old midfielder sustained the injury during a collision with Ousmane Dembele in training for the French national team on Wednesday.

In a statement, Real Madrid confirmed that Camavinga had torn the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee. The club gave no specific time frame for his return, leaving uncertainty around his recovery.

Camavinga is a regular presence in Real Madrid’s line-up. This season, he has started 13 of the team’s 17 games this season in both LaLiga and the Champions League. His absence adds to Real Madrid’s growing injury list, making him the eighth player currently sidelined.

Among the notable absentees are Vinicius Junior, who sustained a thigh injury in Brazil’s recent match against Colombia, and long-term absentees Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao, both recovering from surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament.

Kepa Arrizabalaga (adductor), Arda Guler (knee), Aurelien Tchouameni (fracture), and Jude Bellingham (shoulder) are also out.

Real Madrid, currently sitting second in LaLiga, face a challenging period. The team is set to return to action on November 26 against Cadiz in LaLiga, aiming to close the two-point gap behind league leaders Girona.
