Real Madrid are saddened with news of two players injured during the International break for their respective countries while on duty.
Luka Modric was forced off injured in Croatia’s 1-1 draw against Wales in Cardiff on Sunday evening and Gareth Bale also suffered an injury.
“According to the doctors, Modric has had a painful knock to the quads,” Nikola Jerkan, a member of Croatia’s medical staff said.
“It’s logical that people are worried about the Clasico, but it doesn’t seem very bad.”
“Bale suffered a small cramp but he wanted to continue,” Wales coach Ryan Giggs explained in his post-match press conference.
