Di María and Pepe could miss Champions League Final

Real Madrid did not only lose about every chance at a Liga BBVA title, they could have lost Di María and Pepe for the Champions League Final against Atlético

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Real Madrid's injury report is really worrying. Cristiano Ronaldo was replaced by Álvaro Morata on the 8th minute and although he will be able to play the Champions League Final, his condition might not be good enough to perform at his true level. Furthermore, Pepe and Di María ended Wednesday's match against Valladolid with injuries on the calf and hip respectively and will wait until they get some medical tests done on Friday.

So here's how everything looks for Real Madrid just 16 days before the crucial Champions League Final.

Player Injury Status for UCL Final
Cristiano Ronaldo Hamstring Confirmed
Gareth Bale Knock Confirmed
Dani Carvajal Niggle Confirmed
Álvaro Arbeloa Kneecap Confirmed but he has yet to play after two months
Sami Khedira Torn ACL Confirmed but he has yet to play after six months
Pepe Calf Unknown but worrying, further news on Friday
Ángel Di María Hip and adductor Unknown but also worrying, further news on Friday
Jesé Rodríguez Torn ACL Out

So there you have at least 5 potential starters with physical problems. Yes, Ronaldo, Bale and Carvajal will play. But how well? How ready? The truth is Real Madrid aren't catching a break with injuries.
