Zinedine Zidane’s side have been some what unfortunate with injuries this summer. New signing Luka Jovic recently joined the ever-growing injury list at Real, alongside Ferland Mendy and Brahim Diaz, both of whom are struggling with hamstring injuries. The real blow for Los Blancos is the long-term absence of Marco Asensio. The Spanish midfielder suffered a cruciate ligament rupture and will be out until spring of next year.
As for the side from the Italian capital, they have managed to keep the whole squad fit throughout pre-season so far. However, Patrik Schick and Steven Nzonzi haven’t started in any of their last three matches, fuelling rumours of their exits from the club. Sunday’s match in Rome will be the 14th time the two clubs have faced one another. Madrid have taken the spoils nine times, while I Giallorossi have been victorious on just three occasions.
The most recent meetings between the two came in last season’s Champions League group stages. Goals from Isco, Gareth Bale, and Mariano Diaz gave Los Blancos a comfortable 3-0 win at the Bernabeu. The story was a similar one in Italy. Bale netted once again with Lucas Vazquez also getting in on the action as a 2-0 win for Madrid meant they topped Group G, while Roma also went through in second.
