Real Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez is not training with the squad just a few days ahead of the team’s trip to Germany to face Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League Semifinals —Wednesday, 20:45 CET—.
Nacho has missed the last few weeks with a hamstring injury and his absence would hurt Real Madrid’s depth for the defensive line, even though it’s clear that he would not play unless something were to happen to Ramos or Varane. Nacho is Madrid’s only injured player and the team will not play again until next Wednesday, so Zidane’s men should be good to go.
The upcoming tie against Bayern Munich will be monumental as the Champions League is the only title Los Blancos can win this season. Real Madrid will surely want to prove that they are a historic team by winning their third straight European title, a feat which hasn’t been accomplished in the modern era.
