The player is doubtful for Sunday’s game due to a back problem, but he is not expected to return to Madrid.

David Alaba couldn’t finish Austria’s game against France last night. The Real Madrid player left the pitch in the 69th minute due to muscle discomfort. After the match, the Austrian coach assured that it was not a simple discomfort, but an injury.

“Alaba is injured and won’t be able to be present on Sunday. He has problems and he said it’s in his back. He couldn’t continue playing and now he’s not sure if he can play on Sunday”, explained the Austrian coach.

Words that put Real Madrid on alert, but today the news is rather reassuring. After speaking with the Austrian FA and the player himself, the Real Madrid staff have been informed that the defender doesn’t suffer from any serious injuries.

Considering this fact, Alaba is going to stay with the Austrian national team and won’t return to Madrid prematurely. This is the idea that the player and the national team officials have at the moment.

Although he is doubtful for the match against Croatia, he will remain with Austria while waiting to see how his back problems evolve. What is clear is that Alaba are not going to risk playing against Croatia, even if Austria play to avoid relegation to League B of the Nations League.
