Rodrygo Goes and Dani Caravajal and are set to miss Real Madrid’s season opener against Almería tonight, reports Marca.
Rodrygo is struggling with muscular problems and missed Los Blancos’ training session on Saturday morning. He started feeling pain in his right thigh and the medical team confirmed it would be for the best if the player didn’t play this weekend.
Dani Caravajal will not be included in the squad either as the club is waiting for him to fully recover from an ankle sprain that he suffered during pre-season.
The rest of the first-team have been included in the match-day squad for the game that is set to kick off at 22.00 local time.
For the first time since the pandemic, apart from the Champions League Final, the media were able to witness the first 15 minutes of Real Madrid’s training session. All the players were smiling and spirits appeared to be high as Los Blancos completed final pre-match preparations.
