The leg injury sidelined Asensio for entire the 2019/20 season

It was in the past on July 23, 2019, in the US, when Marco Asensio suffered a severe injury that saw him sidelined for much of the 2019/20 season. Real Madrid were losing 2-0 to Arsenal in a half-season match at FedEx Field. When Zinedine Zidane decided to send the Spanish forward. Los Blancos equalized in a matter of 15 minutes, with Asensio participating in both goals. Five minutes later, he left the field on a stretcher after tearing the cruciate ligament and lateral meniscus in his left knee. “The first week was tough,” he said in a documentary produced by Real Madrid TV back in June. It was challenging to go through it.”

Asensio worked hard all year and raced to return towards the end of the season. But the pandemic enforced break meant that he had a full 11 rounds yet to come by when he was coming up again. Zinedine Zidane gave him playing time in nine of the 11 games played. Since LaLiga restarted and recouped his coach’s confidence with three goals and one assist. Asensio, often challenged by either Luis Enrique or Robert Moreno, could have missed Euro 2020 due to his disrupted season. Still, the tournament was pushed back to next summer, and in the meantime, the Spaniard was able to rise again.
