Injuries and covid
As you may know, Real Madrid has few players injured. Also, Jovic has a covid and he is in self-isolation.

They are not available against Alaves. Zidane was not happy with injury updates. He said that Carvajal has a micro-discomfort and he will be out for the next two weeks. Zidane said that injuries will be there as they play every three days and it’s not easy for healthy players to keep up with regime.
