Real’s squad was decimated by Covid cases prior to their final match before Christmas after David Alaba contracted the virus.

Ancelotti’s outfit overcame Athletic Bilbao 2-1 with a threadbare squad on December 22 ahead of LaLiga’s winter break.

Real were without 11 first-team stars through Covid, injury and suspension last week and the coronavirus outbreak continues to impact the squad.

Players Luka Modric, Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, Gareth Bale, Marcelo, Andriy Lunin all tested positive for the virus earlier this month, while Isco and Alaba contracted the virus last week.

Real’s rivals Barcelona are also struggling with a Covid outbreak as they revealed Ousmane Dembele, Samuel Umtiti and Gavi had all been forced into self-isolation after returning positive tests on Wednesday.

The number of playing staff with the virus reached seven with Xavi’s side due to face Real Mallorca in league action on Sunday.
