Real Madrid’s victory against Valencia via penalty shootouts in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup came at a cost as several of their players picked up knocks and injuries.

Eder Militao suffered a blow to the head that left him dizzy and was taken off, while Lucas Vazquez also had to come off with an ankle sprain which has potentially ruled him out for the final this weekend. Federico Valverde also sustained knocks but is expected to be fit and available.

However, the same cannot be said of fellow midfielder Eduardo Camavinga. The 20-year-old, who was handed a rare start on Wednesday, had to come off at half-time due to a knock to the knee.

And, now MARCA is reporting that the French international midfielder will need to rest after his fitness problem which could lead to him missing the finals of the Spanish Super Cup.

Camavinga was spotted icing his knee soon after his substitution and the midfielder, along with the aforementioned duo of Vazquez and Militao were subjected to medical tests today.

As per the report, the youngster will need to rest with there being some serious doubt within the Real Madrid camp over his availability for the finals later this week.

This will come as a blow for Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti, who are already without Aurelien Tchouameni, who is sidelined for three weeks due to muscular discomfort.

With Toni Kroos and Luka Modric clocking a lot of minutes and Valverde also sustaining knocks, Ancelotti has a headache when it comes to his options in the middle of the park for the final later this week.

As for Vazquez and Militao, an update on their situation is awaited, although the sensations surrounding the latter’s condition are positive as things stand.

After securing a hard-fought victory over Valencia, Real Madrid will face either Barcelona or Real Betis in the finals.

In this conversation, she opened up about their experiences living in Spain and her husband’s potential future moves.

Anastasia expressed her deep affection for Spain, mentioning how welcomed and comfortable both she and Lunin feel in the country. 

She emphasised their love for the place, but also made it clear that if Lunin needs to move to another country for his career, she will fully support him and follow him wherever he needs to go.

“We love Spain very much, the people here are very friendly and we feel very welcomed and comfortable,” said Tamazova as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

There has been a lot of speculation about Lunin’s future at Real Madrid and recent reports have suggested that the keeper was disappointed when the team’s coach, Carlo Ancelotti, chose not to play him in the Champions League final, even though Lunin had anticipated this decision. 

With the return of Thibaut Courtois, Lunin’s chances of being the main goalkeeper have significantly decreased. 

This situation has led him to consider a possible move this summer, with interest from several big clubs like Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal, and Juventus.

It is said that despite the uncertainty, the final decision rests with Lunin. Real Madrid have expressed their desire to keep him and have offered him a contract extension until 2029

Although Lunin seemed ready to sign the new contract, the events surrounding the Champions League final have caused him to reconsider his options. The choice of Courtois over him has planted seeds of doubt about his future with the club.
