The Chelsea loanee tore a muscle before the match against Braga and Modric injured his thigh against Cadiz last weekend.
Kepa and Modric missed out the previous game against Napoli. After completing the game, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed (via Diario AS) that the duo won’t be available for Saturday’s fixture against Granada at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I don’t think (anyone will be back), but then I think Modric can come back against Betis. We’re going to prepare for the game against Granada with these players.”
Andriy Lunin will continue taking the gloves. He was the club’s main goalkeeper in the last four matches. Nico Paz could replace Veteran midfielder Modric.
