Nothing serious with David Alaba

Good news for Ancelotti: Alaba underwent medical tests this Friday that ruled out a serious injury. The Austrian defender suffers a very slight knee sprain, which does not affect any ligament, and is not even ruled out for the game this Sunday at the Bernabeu against Sevilla (9:00 p.m.). Alaba retired with a sore left knee in last Wednesday’s match against the Sheriff in the Champions League. On the first scan, doctors diagnosed that he had a knee sprain, but more extensive tests were pending to reveal the exact extent of the ailment. After making them, the diagnosis is a relief for Ancelotti, because he may arrive in time to play against Sevilla and, if not, he should be recovered to play Wednesday’s game against Athletic.


The game against Sevilla

The other good news of the Madrid session is the recovery of Valverde, who has recovered together with the rest of his teammates with total normality and can also be included among those called up for the important match against Sevilla. Who remains unfit is Hazard, who has been on the sidelines for more than a week. This time he did solo work within the facilities and also on the pitch. The club’s version is that he suffers from gastroenteritis, a disease that he has overcome but which, they say, has left him very weak and that prevents him from training at the same pace as his teammates. His return may take place tomorrow or next week, after the game against Sevilla, in which it is very difficult for him to be.
