German central defender Antonio Rüdiger will have a special mask designed to protect the wound with the 20 stitches that were placed on him
This Wednesday the German center-back Antonio Rüdiger underwent several medical tests that determined that he did not suffer any type of bone injury in the strong blow he suffered in the match against Shakhtar, and that he required 20 stitches to be applied to his forehead.
It is expected that the player will fit a mask to play with his face protected, and at the moment he is not ruled out for the Clásico against FC Barcelona this Sunday.

The Real Madrid medical team carried out a radiological study on Rüdiger, which, according to EFE from the white club, ruled out that he suffered a bone injury due to the strong impact against goalkeeper Anatoli Trubin.
The incident occurred during the action that gave the meringues a draw in the 95th minute of the match against Shakhtar, and which represented the mathematical classification for the round of 16.
Measurements have been taken of Rüdiger’s face to urgently create a mask so that the German can test it in training, before deciding on his presence in Sunday’s duel against Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. During his time at Chelsea he has already played with a mask.
At the moment he is not ruled out, although with the recent 20-point injury, his evolution will be studied in the coming days so that Carlo Ancelotti, in communication with the medical staff and the player, can make a decision on Saturday. This Wednesday, the player will rest at his home.
