Huge blow for Real Madrid As Luka Modric Out For 6 Weeks
Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Malaga came at a huge cost.
Injuries to Gareth Bale and Luka Modric look set to rule the former Spurs pair out of the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
Modric left the Bernabeu pitch 15 minutes into the La Liga match, AS claim it is due to a sprained ligament in his right knee.
AS claim that the diagnosis of 5-6 weeks is what was revealed to Modric and Ancelotti in the Real Madrid changing room after the match.
If its a 6-week lay-off, Modric will miss the rest of the season and only be available for hypothetical Champions League final.
Considering Real Madrid went through their worst spell of the season when Modric was injured previously, its possible the Croatian has become their key player.
