The club has provided no timespan for the recovery of Mendy and it is also not revealed as to for how long Mendy would be out of action.

Real Madrid have three more domestic fixtures remaining. The first of those will be on Thursday against Granada.

Real Madrid missed a chance to draw level against Atletico Madrid on Sunday after being held to a 2-2 draw against Sevilla.
