Nobody knows just yet whether Toni Kroos will be able to play against Juventus this next Wednesday. The midfielder picked up a hip injury on the 24th minute against Valencia and had to leave the field. While initially it was reported as a muscle injury, it seems that Kroos doesn't have that kind of problem, meaning that there are reasons to be optimistic. Kroos is a crucial player in this roster especially after Modric's injury, so his absence would have been devastating for Real's chances of advancing to the Champions League Final.

Real Madrid sources told Managing Madrid that while Kroos still has some pain, he should be able to make it to the return leg of the Champions League Semifinals against Juventus..

The player himself told the fans "not to worry" on his Twitter account as well.

Thank you for your kind messages! I've just been through the examination. Dont worry. Let's focus on Wednesday!
