Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Inter Milan

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League clash with Inter Milan on Wednesday.

Real Madrid's quest for a 14th European title kicks off on Wednesday with a blockbuster encounter against Serie A champions Inter Milan at San Siro.

Under the tutelage of Zinedine Zidane, Real knocked out Liverpool en route to the semi-finals last term but were ultimately sent packing by eventual winners Chelsea.

Los Blancos enter their inaugural Champions League clash on the back of a stellar 5-2 success against Celta Vigo in La Liga action, with Karim Benzema scoring a hat-trick while Vinicius Junior and new arrival Eduardo Camavinga also got in on the act.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Real's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hip
Possible return date: September 15 (vs. Inter)

Toni Kroos was thought to have an outside chance of returning to the fold against Celta but did not make the cut at the weekend. The German midfielder is facing a race against time to be fit for Wednesday, although new recruit Camavinga demonstrated his worth to the side last time out.

Ferland Mendy

Possible return date: Unknown

Ferland Mendy continues to recover from the leg issue he sustained at the back end of the 2020-21 season, and the left-back is set to remain out of contention for now.

Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: Unknown

Dani Ceballos suffered a nasty-looking ankle injury while representing Spain at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and will not be ready to feature here, although recent reports have claimed that he is set to return to Real Betis on loan in January anyway.
