Real Madrid faced a challenging clash against Villarreal at the iconic Bernabéu on Sunday night, but the match took a somber turn as they grappled with injuries throughout the game.

Heading into the fixture, Los Blancos were already missing several key players due to various injuries, setting a challenging backdrop for the team.

Austria international and seasoned defender David Alaba was substituted off in the 34th minute. He is a crucial component of Real Madrid’s defensive lineup. His coming off raised concerns among fans and pundits alike. Initially described as discomfort, subsequent reports have unveiled a more alarming scenario.

According to reliable sources, including Melchor Ruiz from COPE, the extent of Alaba’s injury is suspected to be severe. The preliminary diagnosis points towards a sprained internal lateral ligament, a setback that could potentially sideline the Austrian for a considerable period. The severity of the injury raises questions about Real Madrid’s defensive stability in the upcoming fixtures.

French left back Ferland Mendy also felt discomfort in his leg and had to come off at halftime.

According to the club, Alaba’s injury looks bad. Radiological tests will be done tonight or tomorrow. Mendy has discomfort in his right leg. Tests will be done tomorow.

As the football community awaits further medical assessments and tests in the coming hours, there is an air of uncertainty regarding Alaba’s availability for future matches. The club’s medical staff will likely conduct thorough examinations to determine the full extent of the injury and formulate an appropriate course of action for the player’s recovery.

The potential absence of Alaba poses a significant challenge for Real Madrid, as they navigate a demanding season across multiple competitions. The defensive unit, already coping with the absence of other key players, now faces the additional burden of compensating for the loss of Alaba’s experience and skill.

Real Madrid supporters will anxiously await updates on Alaba’s condition, hoping for a positive prognosis despite initial reports suggesting a serious setback. The impact of his absence could reverberate through the team’s performance, emphasizing the importance of squad depth and adaptability as they strive to maintain their competitive edge in domestic and international competitions.
