Former England captain David Beckham will miss his fourth straight game for Real Madrid following a knee injury.

The 31-year-old midfielder returned to training this week but was not included in the 20-man squad for Sunday's game against Osasuna.

Beckham suffered lateral ligament damage when he ran into the advertising signs against Getafe on 4 March.

"He is not ready. He trained today for the first time but did not finish the session," said Real boss Fabio Capello.

Beckham is set to join Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy in August.

Meanwhile, Brazilian full-back Roberto Carlos has been included in the Real squad after a month out because of a torn calf muscle.
