Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Unionistas

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Copa del Rey tie at Unionistas.

Real Madrid take a break from La Liga action on Wednesday night as they take on Unionistas in the Copa del Rey.

Despite previous speculation regarding his future, Zinedine Zidane has secured his place in the dugout for the foreseeable future with success in the Supercopa de Espana and victory over Sevilla at the weekend.

Real's next encounter represents an opportunity for the Frenchman to rest his star figures, handing opportunities to fringe players and some of the club's prospects.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with the minnows.


Eden Hazard

Status: Out
Type of injury: Foot
Possible return date: February 1 (vs. Atletico Madrid)

Eden Hazard is closing in on a return to first-team action after he suffered a hairline fracture to his foot. While there is a small chance that he could feature at the weekend, the derby with Atletico Madrid appears to be more realistic.


Marco Asensio

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

As it stands, no date has been pencilled in for Asensio's return from a serious knee injury, which was sustained during pre-season. However, there is hope that the playmaker may feature before the end of the campaign.


Sergio Ramos

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: January 26 (vs. Real Valladolid)

Having missed a number of matches with a sprained ankle, Ramos is said to be closing in on a return. However, it would come as a surprise if Zidane risked the centre-back in a game of this profile, likely leaving the 33-year-old to feature against Real Valladolid at the weekend.


REAL MADRID'S SUSPENSION LIST

Real Madrid have no suspension concerns ahead of this game, with Dani Carvajal's one-match ban not taking effect until the weekend.
