The attacker was delayed in returning to training due to a small but excruciating injury between his toes, so he is expected no earlier than next week.
Mariano is injured
Mariano Diaz will not play in Real Madrid’s first match against Eibar on Sunday. The attacker was delayed in returning to training due to a small but excruciating injury between his toes, so he is expected no earlier than next week. Mariano alternates between individual work and group work in the last two weeks, as he also suffered from muscle overload. Real Madrid took an ultra-cautious policy when a player has a slight problem. As has been spotted with Nacho Fernandez, Isco, Fede Valverde, and Gareth Bale a few weeks. For Diaz, the coronavirus-enforced lockdown of football came at a terrible time.
Mariano on the bench
He had just managed to impress Zinedine Zidane, coming on as a substitute to score in the Clasico. At the same time, a week later, Zidane looked to Mariano to change the match. Again from the bench, over Luka Jovic and Gareth Bale. As a result of this knock, he is dealing with it. However, Mariano will join Nacho and Jovic as the only absentees as being Real Madrid’s visit for Eibar to Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. That means that the Real boss will only have one inveterate No. 9 available for him: Karim Benzema. In any case, the outlook for Mariano has changed significantly two weeks before the announcement of the state of emergency. So it seems that he will play a role in the remainder of the season.
Jovic’s injury – he is expected back only after the end of the LaLiga season – means that they Mariano will often be turned to in games, or he will let Benzema get some much-needed rest. Mariano can play a final chance in Real Madrid’s opportunities to raise silverware this season that did not seem probable before that goal in the Clasico.
