Real Madrid clinched a 1-0 win against Alaves during La Liga’s 18th Matchday, preserving their top spot as they approach the holiday season. Despite the triumphant performance, the evening was overshadowed by an unfortunate incident involving Brazilian player Rodrygo, who suffered a late-game injury.

With the assistance of medical staff, Rodrygo left the field due to pain in his right knee, leaving Merengue supporters anxious. Concurrently, as Girona held Betis to a 1-1 draw, Real Madrid maintains its lead over Catalonia and Barcelona in the standings.

Ancelotti intends to offer comfort

After the game, Carlo Ancelotti maintained a positive outlook and endeavored to provide reassurance to the 22-year-old Brazilian striker. According to Marca’s report, the coach stated, “He’s a little tired; it was a significant exertion,” during his press interaction.

“Rodrygo is a bit tired, but he deserves a perfect score for his hard work. Lucas is actively contributing in the penalty area and assisted in the Villarreal match. We’re pleased with how the team performed tonight, and our victory is truly a result of their unwavering dedication.”

As per the coach’s assessment, Rodrygo mainly dealt with muscle problems after the Alaves game. On the other hand, the player conveyed his contentment with a selfie taken in the dressing room with Lucas Vazquez, accompanied by a decisive ‘yes.’

Real Madrid is contending with injuries, particularly knee problems affecting David Alaba, Thibaut Courtois, and Eder Militao, leading to their exclusion from the team. The absence of multiple essential players has added to the team’s difficulties in recent weeks. Before Rodrygo exited the field with the assistance of the club’s medical team, Real Madrid was already dealing with the absence of Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Carvajal, and Vinicius Jr.

Approaching a challenging kickoff to 2024, with five games scheduled for January, including the derby against Atlético in the Spanish Supercup, Real Madrid faces the prospect of losing yet another crucial team member for an extended duration.
