In the context of Real Madrid’s preparations to face Eibar in the Spanish Football League, Royal coach Zinedine Zidane is very happy with the completion of his striking strength, hoping to settle the League title against his traditional competitor Barcelona.
As the La Liga period had stopped since mid-March due to the Corona epidemic, it was an opportunity for the healing of his injured stars, headed by Eden Hazard and Marco Ascencio, who Zidane dreamed of being alongside the top scorer of the team, Karim Benzema, and humiliated to complete his ideal offensive triangle.

Zidane was deprived of achieving his dream due to the long absence of Asensio since he suffered a knee ligament tear in front of Arsenal in the Champions Cup in the United States before the start of the season, and successive injuries to Hazard as well, which affected the striking strength of the team and caused his decline to the second place in La Liga, two points behind leaders Barcelona. With 58 points.
However, injuries were still chasing the team, as Real Madrid announced today, Monday, that its international defender, Nacho Fernandez, was injured in the thigh muscles.
The club did not reveal the expected length of the player’s absence, which was set by some media between two and three weeks.
But the absence of Nacho is not the result of the loss of Hazard and Ascencio, as Zidane made him a few times this season, and he played only nine out of 27 La Liga matches, including four games, and scored two goals.
Nacho has become the second player in the royal ranks to be injured since the training resumed last May 8, after Serbian international striker Luka Jovic, who suffers from a fracture of his right foot, due to which he will be absent from the long green rectangle.
