Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Atletico Madrid

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga clash with Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid will be looking to continue their strong start to the 2019-20 La Liga campaign when they travel to the Wanda Metropolitano to face Atletico Madrid on Saturday night.

Los Blancos beat Osasuna 2-0 on Wednesday to move to the top of La Liga - one point clear of second-placed Atletico as things stand.

For all of the criticism that has come their way this season, Zinedine Zidane's side are unbeaten in Spain's top flight this term and recorded an impressive 1-0 victory at Sevilla on their travels last time out.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Atletico.


Luka Modric

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: September 28 (vs. Atletico Madrid)

The experienced midfielder has missed Real Madrid's last four games with a muscular problem, while a suspension earlier this season means that he has made just two appearances this term. The 34-year-old could return against Atletico, though, as he has been back in training this week.


Marco Asensio

Marco Asensio faces a battle to play again this season after suffering a serious knee injury during the team's preparations for the 2019-20 campaign. A timeframe on his return has not yet been set by the club.


Isco

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: September 28 (vs. Atletico Madrid)

The 27-year-old has missed Real Madrid's last five matches in all competitions with a hamstring problem. The attacker has entered the latter stage of his recovery from the issue, although he remains a serious doubt for this weekend's capital derby at the Wanda Metropolitano.


Marcelo

Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Neck
Possible return date: September 28 (vs. Atletico Madrid)

The 31-year-old has been absent from Real Madrid's last three matches due to a neck injury. However, having not featured against Osasuna, there is a chance that the Brazilian could return for this one.


Ferland Mendy
