Real Madrid has been dealt a major blow as Luka Modric has suffered a left thigh injury. He will miss the Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao and the match against Manchester City in the Champions League. The injury occurred during the game against Girona, and the estimated time out of action is two weeks.
The absence of Modric is a huge setback for Real Madrid as they enter the most critical phase of the season. The Croatian midfielder is a vital part of Ancelotti’s system and is often featured in important matches. The injury has become a significant concern for Madrid.
While there is some hope that Modric will make a return in the second leg against Manchester City, the Croatian’s absence could be detrimental to Madrid’s chances of advancing. Carlo Ancelotti expressed his concern during a recent press conference, stating that he is still awaiting progress on Modric’s injury.
The absence of Modric has forced Ancelotti to reshuffle his squad. Other players will now needto step up in his absence. Madrid’s final training session before their game against Almeria saw the absence of Modric. Thibaut Courtois, who missed the game against Girona due to intestinal problems, was present during the morning session. Ferland Mendy and David Alaba, who are undergoing their recovery process were also present.
