Zidane was deprived of the fulfillment of his dream due to the long absence of Asensio since he suffered a knee ligament tear in front of Arsenal in the United States Champions Cup before the start of the season, and successive injuries to Hazard as well. This affected the striking strength of the team, and caused him to fall to the second place in the League, two points behind leaders Barcelona with 58 points.
However, injuries were still chasing the team, as Real Madrid announced today, Monday, that its international defender, Nacho Fernandez, was injured in the thigh muscles.

The club did not reveal the expected length of the player’s absence, which was set by some media between two and three weeks.
But the absence of Nacho is not the result of the loss of Hazard and Ascencio, as Zidane made him a few times this season, and he played only nine out of 27 La Liga matches, including four games, and scored two goals.
Nacho has become the second player in the ranks of the royal to be injured since the training resumed last May 8, after Serbian international striker Luka Jovic, who suffers from a fracture of his right foot.
