La Liga powerhouse, Real Madrid are desperately seeking relief from a relentless onslaught of injuries.

Carlo Ancelotti's side are currently grappling with an alarming number of injuries which appears to have reached unprecedented heights.

Before the recent international break, Los Blancos had already faced setbacks with more than nine players sidelined, including the season-ending anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears suffered by Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao.

Despite the break, there was little respite for the Madrid-based club, as both Vinicius Jr and Eduardo Camavinga also sustained long-term injuries.

To compound the team's woes, a recent report from Diario AS, cited by Madrid Xtra, revealed that forward Rodrygo had suffered a knock while on international duty with the Brazil national team.

The Selecao attacker played a significant role in matches against Colombia and Argentina, but a clash with midfielder Rodrigo de Paul left him nursing an injury.

As the 23-year-old awaits tests to determine the extent of his injury and the anticipated duration of his absence remains uncertain, fans of the La Liga club have taken to social media to express their frustration with the escalating injury crisis.

Rodrygo backed to shine again

Sports Brief previously reported on Rodrygo having a tough start to the 2023/24 season for Real Madrid, but the La Liga club is solidly behind the Brazilian forward despite his struggles.

While Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior are hogging the headlines for their performances this season, the 22-year-old forward has managed one goal in over 800 minutes for Los Blancos.

According to Football Espana, President Florentino Perez still sees Rodrygo as having the potential to become one of the best players in the world and has backed him to find his best form.
