, injuries increased by 20% during the 2021-2022 season, compared to the previous season.

These injuries resulted in a cost of 610 million euros to the players according to said report.

An amount calculated according to the daily cost of a player multiplied by his number of days of absence.

The report estimates the overall cost of the 91 injuries recorded in the capital club's XXL squad at 40.7 million euros last year.

Then follow the two giants of Spain, Real Madrid (40.3 million euros) and FC Barcelona (33.2 million euros).
