Aurelien Tchouameni out of action for couple of months
Real Madrid have a 100% win record this season whenever Aurelien Tchouameni has started
Aurelien Tchouameni, a midfielder for Real Madrid, has been officially confirmed to have a fracture caused by stress in his left foot.
Aurelien Tchouameni started the match and participated for the entire ninety minutes as Real Madrid came from behind to win 2-1. However, following the game, he uploaded a picture of himself in a hospital, which infuriated the fans.
Tchouameni’s left foot has been diagnosed with a stress fracture by Madrid, and the La Liga leaders have declined to provide a timetable for his recovery.
However, according to local rumours, the French midfielder will be out for at least six weeks, if not more than two months, which means he might not be able to play competitively again until 2024.
The news is a huge blow to Real Madrid, who have started Tchouameni in 12 games this year and have not experienced a loss. He has started all of the La Liga games, with the exception of the 3-1 loss to Atletico Madrid.
Toni Kroos was occasionally employed as a defensive midfielder last season, but Eduardo Camavinga currently seems to be Carlo Ancelotti’s preferred defensive midfielder.

It’s unclear if Tchouameni will be able to participate in any of Madrid’s December matches against Granada, Real Betis, Villarreal, and Alaves in addition to their November matchups against Rayo Vallecano, Valencia, and Cadiz.
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and centre-back Eder Militao have both started out for Madrid, and teenage midfielder Arda Guler is still being gradually added back to the lineup following knee surgery in the summer.
However, Los Blancos revealed that the young midfield player has a fractured second metatarsal, so it appears like he may be out for some time.
Tchouaméni may be sidelined for the full month of November due to the injury, which would mean he would miss the matches against Valencia, Braga, and Napoli.
