The MRI to which the Austrian has undergone confirms a contracture in the adductor. It will be in doubt until the day of the match against City.


Confirmation from Madrid medical team

A confirmation and an uncertainty. The MRI to which David Alaba underwent to determine the extent of the injury he suffered in the game against Osasuna reveals that the Real Madrid defender suffers from a contracture in the adductor of his right leg. A diagnosis that makes the Austrian doubtful until Tuesday, the day of the game against City. Alaba worked today Saturday inside the Valdebebas facilities. Three days before the first leg of the semi-finals, and less than 48 hours before the team leaves for Manchester, Ancelotti has many doubts about the players who will be able to travel with the expedition and those he can line up at the Etihad. The presence of up to six footballers is on the wire. The ones with the most options to arrive are Mendy and Bale . The French winger is progressing adequately from his right adductor injury and did part of the training with the group, while the Welshman, who was absent at the last minute for the match against Osasuna due to some discomfort, trained with the group.


Jovic and Case will miss too

Casemiro, Jovic and Mariano have it more complicated. The Brazilian, with hamstring problems, did individual work, both in the gym and on the pitch, and is a serious doubt. Meanwhile, the two forwards have discomfort in their adductors and it will be difficult for them to be available for Ancelotti ahead of the first qualifying match. Both trained in the gym with Hazard. The Belgian is the only certain casualty. Eden continues his recovery from the operation he underwent at the end of March to remove the plate he had on his fibula. Marcelo, who has missed the last two games, returned to participate in the group’s work dynamics , as he did on Friday.
