Real Madrid have released a medical report on Pepe.

After the initial exploration and MRI on Pepe today, he's been diagnosed a muscular injury in his calf. It is a grade 1 injury and he's pending of further development on the injury.

 So, big news for Real Madrid as Pepe should be out around 15 days. He will surely remain questionable until the very end but he should be able to play in the Champions League Final. His absence would be devastating and both the club and the player know that, so he will do his best to be on the field against Atlético de Madrid. The best he can do right now is to nurse that injury and be careful the week before the match. If he was ruled out for the game, the club would've surely announced it, so this is pretty much the confirmation that Pepe will be able to play.
