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

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's La Liga showdown with Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid square off against rivals Atletico Madrid on Sunday afternoon looking to move to within two points of the La Liga leaders.

Los Blancos are unbeaten in their last five matches in Spain's top flight, collecting 13 points from a possible 15 to remain in contention for the league crown.

However, Monday's 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad has halted the club's momentum at a time when Zinedine Zidane is having to contend with a well-populated treatment room.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Real's injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with their neighbours at Wanda Metropolitano.

Dani Carvajal

Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: Unknown

Carvajal suffered a recurrence of a hamstring problem against Valencia earlier this month, and the right-back is now facing another period on the sidelines.

Sergio Ramos
