Real Madrid’s La Liga campaign might have been a huge disappointment but they have delivered the goods when it comes to cup competitions. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are in the Copa del Rey final, where they will be taking on Osasuna. They are also in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, where they will face Manchester City.
While the La Liga title race might be as good as over, Real Madrid still have the chance to win a double. Of course, as is always the case with cup competitions, there is very little room for error.
The Copa del Rey final against Osasuna will be played early next month and is less than ten days away. And unfortunately, the club have been handed a blow ahead of it already.
As tweeted out by El Chiringuito TV, Luka Modric is injured. It seems to be a hamstring issue. It is almost impossible for him to play in the Copa del Rey final. His presence in the first leg against Manchester City is in doubt as well.
Real Madrid superstar to miss Copa del Rey final with injury
Modric is one of the most experienced players that Real Madrid have and he is also someone who rises to the plate in the big games. Thus, the club certainly need him in these kind of matches.
If Modric does end up missing the Copa del Rey final against Osasuna, then that would be a big blow for Los Blancos without a shadow of a doubt. Let’s see how things play out over the coming days and we can only hope for the best.
Osasuna might not be one of the top teams in La Liga, but they are enjoying a solid season. They currently sit 8th in the league table and it would be a major mistake to take the opposition lightly.
