As players in the Spain League have not been 100% vaccinated. The La Liga may reduce the number to only five first-team players. With the remainder being made up of players from Team B or the youth team in each match.

Replacing Modric

The first issue is how to replace Modric, as the Croatian has been a vital source of creativity for his side this campaign.

His positive test has opened the door for Eduardo Camavinga to shine in central midfield. While Isco is a less-likely option to be used there.

The right wing dilemma

The virus has also left Los Blancos short of options on the right wing. As Rodrygo and Asensio will be unable to continue their battle to partner Karim Benzema and Vinicius.

As for Bale, his difficult season has been compounded with a positive test. They are having just overcome a long-term injury in his right hamstring.
