The Croatian had to be substituted during the match against Girona on Tuesday after experiencing significant pain. Modrić immediately had ice applied to his thigh, and it has now been confirmed that he has suffered an injury to the back of his left thigh.
The extent of the injury is not yet clear, and his progress will be monitored by the Real Madrid Medical Services.
However, if he does not recover during the coming weeks, his aim is to be fully fit for the second leg of the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League against an opponent yet to be determined, scheduled for May 17.
This injury is a significant setback for Real Madrid, as Modrić is a key player for the team.
He has been a regular starter in midfield this season and has contributed significantly to the team’s success, both in La Liga and in the Champions League.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti expressed his concern about the injury, stating that they don’t know when Modrić will be back, and it remains to be seen whether he will be fit for the Copa del Rey final. Real Madrid’s opponents in the final, Athletic Bilbao, will be hoping that Modrić does not recover in time for the game, as his absence will be a significant boost for their chances of winning the trophy.
Modrić will miss the upcoming games against Almeria, Real Sociedad, and Osasuna, as well as the Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao.
His availability for the upcoming Champions League semi-finals against Manchester City is also uncertain, which could be a huge blow for Real Madrid’s chances of progressing to the final.
In conclusion, Modrić’s injury is a significant setback for Real Madrid, and his absence will be felt by the team. The club will be hoping for a speedy recovery for their midfield maestro, as they look to continue their pursuit of success in both La Liga and the Champions League.
