Real Madrid is facing a potential setback as Brazilian forward Rodrygo returns from international duty with an injury. The news, first reported by journalist Tomas Roncero on El Chiringuito, reveals that the player is dealing with a swollen knee.

Across the Atlantic ocean

The player arrived in Madrid from Brazil on Wednesday night. He wasted no time addressing his condition. On Thursday, he was present at Valdebebas where he underwent assessments with the physiotherapists and engaged in gym sessions to manage the injury.

Despite the setback, there seems to be a sense of calm surrounding the player, according to the aforementioned source. This could be attributed to the proactive measures taken by the club’s medical staff and Rodrygo’s commitment to his recovery.

Glimmer of hope

The pivotal moment to determine Rodrygo’s availability for the upcoming clash will be Friday’s training session. The team management, along with the coaching staff, will closely monitor his fitness. A well-informed decision will be made on his inclusion in the squad for Sunday’s match against Cádiz.

Real Madrid is gearing up for an important fixture, as they face Cádiz in a match corresponding to match-day fourteen of the 2023/2024 La Liga EA Sports season. The outcome of Rodrygo’s fitness assessment will undoubtedly influence the coach’s strategy and lineup choices for the crucial encounter.

Real Madrid remain hopeful

As fans eagerly await updates on Rodrygo’s condition, the club remains hopeful that the talented forward will recover in time to contribute to their La Liga campaign. The unpredictability of injuries adds an element of suspense to the team’s preparations, emphasizing the significance of a thorough evaluation before making any decisions regarding player participation.

The player himself has been the center of attention in recent hours, following his verbal exchange with Leo Messi.

The unpleasant image

During the match against Argentina on Wednesday morning, Rodrygo was ‘sandwiched’ between three Argentines. The Brazilian went down in pain, signaling concern among fans.

Rodrygo caught between three opponents

In the competitive landscape of La Liga, where every point matters, Real Madrid will be keen on having all key players fit and ready for action. Rodrygo’s potential absence could present a challenge, but it also opens up opportunities for other players to step up and make a significant impact on the field.

Fingers crossed

The upcoming days will be crucial in determining whether Rodrygo will be a part of the squad that takes on Cádiz. Until then, Real Madrid and its supporters will be holding their breath, hoping for a positive outcome in the race against time to ensure the Brazilian forward’s swift return to the pitch.
