Real Madrid has been dealt a major blow ahead of their Champions League semi-final clash against Manchester City on May 9, as midfielder Luka Modric has suffered a hamstring injury in his left leg.
Modric sustained the injury during the match against Girona on Tuesday and was immediately taken off the pitch. Real Madrid’s medical team has since diagnosed the injury to the back of his left thigh, and his progress will be monitored.
Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, stated during his pre-match press conference ahead of their game against Almeria on Saturday, “Luka Modric is injured. We don’t know when he will be back, we will see for the Copa del Rey final — we don’t know.”
It is still unclear whether Modric will recover in time to participate in Real Madrid’s upcoming matches against Almeria, Real Sociedad, Osasuna, and Manchester City.
