CR7, Isco, Marcelo Doubts For Real

Real Madrid have major injury concerns ahead of their La Liga tie against Villarreal on Saturday.

First and foremost, their best player- Cristiano Ronaldo- is in doubt for the game against the Yellow Submarine.

CR7 scored a hat-trick in Portugal’s vital World Cup qualifying win over Northern Ireland last week.

The Portuguese superstar appears to be hitting his stride, and Villarreal will be pleased that he may not play in their first match against Real since their return to the top-flight.

Meanwhile, injuries to midfield starlet Isco and wing-back Marcelo compound Real’s woes.

Marcelo will watch from the stands alongside CR7 when Brazil play Portugal in a friendly in Boston on Tuesday night.

He was withdrawn from the Selecao’s weekend win over Australia with a thigh injury, and may not be fit to face Villarreal either.

21-year-old Isco faces a race to be fit by the weekend, as he struggles with a lingering ankle injury.

If he does not recover in time, and with Xabi Alonso also out injured, Madrid may cast a longing glance towards London, where Mesut Ozil now plies his trade with Arsenal.
