Carlo Ancelotti gives positive Luka Modric update ahead of Copa del Rey final.
Following Carlo Ancelotti’s upbeat assessment, Real Madrid supporters can have hope that midfield stalwart Luka Modric will be eligible to play against Osasuna in the Copa del Rey championship game.
Before their matchup with Real Sociedad on Tuesday night, the Italian spoke to the media. Several players were missing from practice. David Alaba should be back in full training on Wednesday, but he won’t be ready for La Real. Eder Militao missed the training session due to personal obligations, Vinicius Junior is suspended for the match, and Fede Valverde did aquatic work but might also make the squad.
However, Modric’s involvement is good news for Los Blancos. The Croatian was listed as questionable for the Saturday Copa del Rey final against Osasuna due to a muscle injury he sustained last week. Next week also sees the start of the first leg of the Champions League semifinal.
“We have good news about Modric. He may be prepared for Saturday,” according to Ancelotti.
The Croatian traveled to Serbia last week to see a specialist about his muscle issue, and it appears that his trip was worthwhile.
It implies that even if he is not fully fit to play against Osasuna in Seville, he will most likely be ready to face Manchester City on Tuesday of the following week. Dani Ceballos will assume his position. However, Ancelotti has acknowledged that no one possesses the same level of experience in pivotal games as Modric.
According to Sport Klub, Modric has sought assistance from Marijana Kovacevic’s clinic, which is well-known for its approaches to treating muscle injuries. Prediction: The Croatian’s injury will heal more quickly than anticipated.
It is uncertain whether Modric will recover in time to play against Osasuna in the upcoming Copa del Rey final. However, when Real Madrid hosts Manchester City at Santiago Bernabeu just three days later, his presence will be even more crucial.
