Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio will miss tomorrow’s Spanish Supercopa final against Athletic Club through injury.
Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio will be unavailable for Sunday’s Spanish Supercup Final against Athletic Bilbao. Asensio was substituted after 68 minutes against La Blaugrana due to this muscular injury. and was unable to exercise with the team today. When the team arrives in Madrid, he will undergo tests to determine the extent of his injury, but he should be out for at least the next two weeks.
Despite winning a lengthy semi-final against Barcelona last week, Ancelotti is now reckoning the cost of vital injuries.
The defensive lynchpin David Alaba has already been ruled out due to a hamstring injury, while Dani Carvajal has been ruled out due to a positive Covid-19 test.
Rodrygo will now be the starting right winger for Real Madrid, at least until Asensio returns. Asensio’s loss will be felt by the club in the coming weeks, as he had rediscovered some form in recent matches, displaying more aggressiveness and verticality both on and off the ball.
Asensio should be ready for the opening leg of the Champions League Round of 16 match, which is less than a month away. He should also have enough time before the game to work on his form and conditioning.
