Ceballos will travel with his team-mates back to Madrid on Saturday and his condition will continue to be monitored over the next 48 hours.

Albert Celades' side are due to meet Estonia in a European Under-21 Championship qualifier on Tuesday in Tallinn, but it remains unclear whether Ceballos will travel.

Since his move to Madrid from Real Betis in July, Ceballos has made one substitute appearance for Zinedine Zidane's side - in the Supercopa de Espana second leg.
