Real Madrid are grappling with a slew of injury setbacks, with long-term absences for key players like Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao.

Adding to the concerns, Arda Guler, signed in the summer, has encountered three injuries without making his debut. Several others are contending with short to medium-term issues.

The club faced a potential blow when reports surfaced that Eduardo Camavinga had to exit French national team training due to a collision with Ousmane Dembele, raising fears of a knee injury, per ESPN.

Camavinga holds a pivotal role in Carlo Ancelotti’s lineup, and his absence would compound Real Madrid's existing challenges.

However, a more positive update has emerged. As per Madrid Xtra, it appears to be a false alarm.

The 21-year-old has a knee bruise but is expected to resume training with the French team without any impediment.

The Frenchman's versatility is a significant asset for Real Madrid, capable of excelling in various midfield roles.

Despite the team's midfield depth, his adaptability, especially in the absence of Aurelien Tchouameni, is crucial.

Notably, he has also demonstrated prowess in the left-back position, arguably becoming the club's best option there.

Fan reactions to Camavinga's injury scare

The news that Camavinga's injury is not severe is a relief for Real Madrid. Fans eagerly anticipate his swift return to the pitch, where he can continue showcasing his football prowess.
