17th November 2023 – (Hong Kong) Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has sustained a knee injury while training with the French national team, according to an announcement made by the LaLiga club on Friday.

Camavinga’s injury has been diagnosed as a “rupture of the external lateral ligament” in his right knee. Real Madrid has not provided a specific timeline for his return, leaving uncertainty over the duration of his absence from the pitch.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who has featured in every league game for Real Madrid this season, joins the growing list of players from the club who have suffered knee injuries, including Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, and Arda Guler.

This setback for Camavinga comes as Real Madrid deals with additional concerns following winger Vinicius Jr’s thigh injury sustained during Brazil’s 2-1 defeat against Colombia on Thursday.

Real Madrid currently sits in second place in LaLiga, accumulating 32 points from 13 matches thus far. Their next league fixture is against Cadiz on November 26, following the international break. The absence of Camavinga due to his knee injury adds to the challenges faced by the team as they prepare for upcoming matches.
