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|
|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.
