No clasico for Real's Carvalho

09 December 2011 02:16

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho will have a full squad to choose from save for Portuguese fullback Ricardo Carvalho for the clasico encounter against Barcelona at the Bernabeu on Saturday, the club said on their website Friday.

The club said Carvalho has pulled a ligament in his right knee and will be unavailable for the table-topping clash as Real bid to preserve their three-point lead over their rivals.

Also plagued with back problems this season, former Porto and Chelsea man Carvalho has not played for two months.
