Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their La Liga clash with Celta Vigo this weekend.
By , European Football Editor | 5d

Real Madrid will be looking to make a strong start to their 2019-20 La Liga campaign when they travel to Celta Vigo on Saturday afternoon.

A disappointing 2018-19 season saw Madrid fail to launch a title challenge, but the capital giants will be expected to fight for the title this season following a busy summer of recruitment.

Zinedine Zidane's side have had a tough pre-season in terms of results, though, losing to Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur and Roma, in addition to that incredible 7-3 loss against Atletico Madrid.

There is huge pressure on Los Blancos to make a positive start to the campaign.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up their latest injury and suspension news ahead of the fixture at the Balaidos.


Marco Asensio


Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Marco Asensio will miss the majority of the 2019-20 campaign after picking up a serious knee injury against Arsenal towards the end of July. The Spaniard has since undergone an operation to repair the damage.


Ferland Mendy


Status: Out
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: September 1 (vs. Villarreal)

Summer arrival Ferland Mendy is expected to battle Marcelo for the left-back spot in Zidane's first XI this season. The 24-year-old will miss the start of the campaign with a hamstring injury, though.


Brahim Diaz


Status: Out
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: September 1 (vs. Villarreal)

Brahim Diaz, who moved to the Bernabeu from Manchester City in January, will also miss out this weekend due to a hamstring problem. The 20-year-old was involved under Zidane in the latter stages of the 2018-19 season and could well play a role for the first team over the next few months.


Rodrygo Goes


Status: Out
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: September 14 (vs. Levante)

Madrid will also be without the services of Brazilian teenager Rodrygo Goes, who is facing three weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring problem. The 18-year-old has impressed for Los Blancos during pre-season following a move from Santos but will be absent against Celta.



REAL MADRID'S SUSPENSION LIST

Dani Carvajal will miss out through suspension after picking up a yellow card during Madrid's last game of the 2018-19 campaign.
