Real Madrid will miss the services of the versatile Rodrygo Goes in the near future.

Real Madrid‘s Brazilian winger Rodrygo suffered a brutal injury to his biceps in the right femur thigh in the match against Granada, running at full steam before falling to the ground after a tussle with Granada defender Dimitri Foulquier.

Initial reports during the match yesterday suggested that he could be out for minimum two weeks. However, we now know how long he could be out for and what could be the estimate of his return to training at the Ciudad del Real Madrid, and then for the matches, eventually.

Today’s report from Spanish outlet Defensa Central states how long would Real Madrid have to do without Rodrygo. According to the report, Rodrygo might remain on the sidelines for a minimum amount of four to six weeks, which means he will definitely miss most of January. However, the possibility of the wonderkid missing out for a few months hasn’t yet been ruled out either. Defensa Central also reports that the injury looks ‘bad’ according to what the club sources told the outlet.

Rodrygo Goes could be out until February

This could be a huge blow for Real Madrid considering that they have had to deal with a lot of injuries this season. To be precise, Rodrygo’s muscle injury is the 35th time a player got injured at the Valdebebas. Final tests on the player are yet to be conducted as he will undergo the diagnosis in the next 24-48 hours. The results of these tests will determine the extent of the injury, how bad is the muscle tear, and how long will he take to recover from it.

Considering what Defensa Central have stated in their report, we can estimate Rodrygo to miss out on the rest of 2020 in addition to the entire month of January and probably the first few weeks of February. With Real Madrid facing Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg on 24th February, Rodrygo might likely miss out on the crucial game. After all, he loves this competition the most.

Let’s hope Rodrygo’s injury doesn’t turn out to be worse than we expect. He can be a very important player for Real Madrid in the closing stages of the season and his versatility will be missed.
