Vinicius out of Eibar clash


Vinicius Junior was the only absentee from Real Madrid’s final training session before taking on Eibar, and will miss the clash due to gastroenteritis.

Zinedine Zidane confirmed the news during his press conference, and will likely be replaced in the starting line-up by either Marco Asensio or fellow Brazilian Rodrygo Goes.

The French coach has brought on one of the aforementioned duo for Vinícius in the second half of clashes against Athletic Club, Atletico Madrid and Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Martin Odegaard, Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz are available after having recovered from their respective problems but, even though Eden Hazard might be available, Zidane was keen to stress that he was lacking match fitness and that caution would be necessary.
