Qualified for the semi-finals of the Champions League following their defeat against Chelsea (2-3, 5-4 cumulative score), the Real Madrid is still aiming for a Championship-Champions League double this season. But the Madrid club’s lack of turnover this season is beginning to weigh on the organizations of Carlo Ancelotti’s players.
Already injured in March due to a tear in the adductors of the left thigh which had deprived him of the rally with the France team, Ferland Mendy had returned for the double confrontation against the Blues. But this Thursday, the French international (7 selections) would have relapsed and was absent from training.
🏥 Mendy suffers an adductor injury that makes him reach the first leg of the semifinals.
❌Marcelo also suffers from an adductor injury

According to Ashe will be out for about two weeks, so he will be very doubtful for the semi-final first leg against Manchester City, which takes place in 13 days at the Etihad Stadium. Other bad news for Ancelotti, his other left side Marcelo is also injured in the adductors (right thigh) but should only be out for a week. The French and the Brazilian will therefore not be traveling to Seville, 3rd in La Liga, this Sunday. It is Nacho who should occupy this post in the absence of the two usual holders.
