A strong blow before El Clásico.. Doubts about the Real Madrid star’s appearance in the match

“Sport” newspaper reported that there are doubts about Vinicius Junior’s appearance against Real Madrid and Barcelona next Sunday due to injury.

The Brazilian star was replaced in extra time of the Royal Club and Manchester City match due to a muscle injury, and he struggled even while walking off the field.

According to the newspaper, Vinicius will undergo comprehensive medical examinations on Thursday to check on his condition, the nature of the injury, and whether he will succeed in participating in El Clásico or not.

Carlo Ancelotti’s biggest current concern is that the 23-year-old’s injury is a muscle strain, and then his absence from El Clásico will be confirmed, in a major blow to the Merengue’s fortunes.

Vinicius has an exceptional record against Barcelona, as he contributed to 9 goals during 16 appearances in El Clásico, the last of which was a hat-trick in the Spanish Super Cup final last January.

Real Madrid enters El Clásico at the top of the La Liga standings, 8 points behind Barcelona, with only 7 rounds remaining until the end of the competition.
