Due to a thigh injury, Luka Modric, a midfielder for Real Madrid, may miss both the opening leg of their Champions League semifinal against Manchester City as well as the Copa del Rey championship game.

Just over an hour into Real’s recent 4-2 loss to Girona, the 37-year-old Croatian limped off with ice strapped to his leg. Although the team declined to provide a timetable for Modric’s return, reports in Spain indicate he might be out for a while.

In a press conference on Friday, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti stated, “He has a small injury.” “I’m not sure if he’ll make it to the cup final. Although we are hurt, these things do occur. I pray for his recovery.

Additionally, Ancelotti listed Dani Ceballos, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni as potential Modric replacements. The manager did admit that Modric is a “irreplaceable player” because of his success in important games.

On May 6, Real Madrid will play Osasuna in the Copa del Rey championship, three days before playing Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final. Due to his suspension, star center back Eder Militao won’t be available to Ancelotti.

In the Champions League first-leg, Ancelotti acknowledged, “We’ll probably have to replace both of them.” Definitely Militao, but preferably not with Modric.
