Real Madrid identify date for possible return of Vinicius Junior – Football Espana

Real Madrid have had rotten luck with injuries so far this season. Thibaut Courtois suffered a serious ACL injury just days before the campaign began, and Eder Militao did similar on the opening matchday against Athletic Club.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Vinicius Junior tore his hamstring during Real Madrid’s victory over Celta Vigo on matchday three, and the expected lay-off time for the Brazilian has been set at six weeks.
That would see Vinicius back for the match against Osasuna on the weekend of 7th/8th October, but as Diario AS have reported, Real Madrid do not want the 22-year-old to action. As such, they are hoping to have him back for the trip to Sevilla, due to take place two weeks later.
Vinicius’ recovery is going as planned: he has been undergoing rehabilitation at Valdebabas, and he was even spotted as last weekend’s Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix in Monza, near the city of Milan.
Real Madrid have yet to feel much of an effect due to Vinicius’ absence, and his replacement against Getafe (Joselu) scored in that match. Even so, he is one of their most important players, and head coach Carlo Ancelotti will be awaiting his return.
