In a thrilling encounter during the 34th round of La Liga, Real Madrid emerged victorious with a slender 1-0 win over Getafe, courtesy of a goal by the talented Marco Asensio in the 70th minute. However, the triumph may come at a steep cost for the Spanish giants.
Real Madrid's Hard-Fought Victory Overshadowed by Camavinga's Injury
During the 84th minute of the match, Eduardo Camavinga, a key player for Real Madrid, was forced off the field due to a troubling injury. The young Frenchman hobbled off, visibly affected by knee pain, raising concerns about his availability for the upcoming second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City.
Doubt on Real Madrid's Champions League Ambitions
According to reports from The Athletic, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti addressed the situation surrounding Camavinga's injury, providing some reassurance to the fans: "It's just a blow, and he will recover swiftly.
Everyone should be prepared to face Manchester City. Camavinga has suffered a knock, but he should be alright." Ancelotti further elaborated, stating, "Yes, he experienced a slight twist in his knee, but it's merely a setback, nothing more.
Tomorrow, he will rest, alongside the other players who featured in tonight's match." "He has twisted his knee to some extent, but his condition is stable. The utmost priority is to ensure stability, reaching a full recovery.
Currently, he is experiencing some discomfort on the inside of his knee, but it's not a major concern." Camavinga played a pivotal role in the initial encounter against Manchester City, which culminated in a 1-1 draw. His absence in the forthcoming clash would undoubtedly be a significant blow to Real Madrid's aspirations of advancing to the final.
The tension is mounting as the stage is set for the second leg of the Champions League semi-final, scheduled to take place at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday at 9 pm. The clash between Manchester City and Real Madrid promises to be a captivating affair, with both teams vying for a spot in the coveted final.
The absence or potential return of Camavinga will undoubtedly play a crucial role in shaping the outcome of this high-stakes encounter.
