Striker Mariano Diaz is another injured Real Madrid player. The 27-year-old player has a muscle injury, confirmed by the club. He suffered an injury during the La Liga match against Real Sociedad on Monday, which ended in a draw 1: 1.
It is unclear how long he will be out of action, but he will certainly miss the derby with Atletico Madrid on Sunday at Wanda Metropolitano. The clash between the two teams could be crucial for the La Liga title.
Real still hope Diaz is ready for the rematch against Atalanta in the 1/8 finals of the Champions League on March 16. In the first match, "White Ballet" won with a minimum of 1: 0 as a guest.
Real's other striker Karim Benzema continues to recover from injury. The French star trains individually. Head coach Zinedine Zidane hopes to be able to count on the goal scorer in the important match against the "mattresses".
Mariano's injury is the 42nd Real Madrid player since the beginning of the season, Marca notes. Sergio Ramos, Daniel Carvajal and Eden Hazard are still recovering, while Rodrigo and Federico Valverde are ready to play.
