Last week, we covered multiple claims made in Spain that stated David Alaba could miss out on Real Madrid’s Champions League semi-final clash against Manchester City.

The first leg between the La Liga side and the Citizens is scheduled to take place at the Etihad on April 26th.

Alaba was taken off at halftime during Los Blancos’ 3-1 win over Granada due to an injury concern. Casemiro also picked up an injury in training last week and EFE reported he is ‘unlikely’ to be fit on time to face Manchester City on Tuesday.

Carlo Ancelotti has included both the Austria international and the midfielder in his squad for the trip to Manchester.

Monday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo explains the duo are ‘still out of the team due to their physical problems’ and ‘today they will pass the final test to find out’ if they can feature against Manchester City.

Cadena Ser journalist Javier Herráez told Carrusel Deportivo that both the defender and the Brazilian have started training alone. However, their ‘presence’ against Pep Guardiola’s side on Tuesday is ‘almost impossible’.

Ferland Mendy has struggled with an injury in recent weeks and has missed his side’s last three league matches. The left-back has been included in Ancelotti’s squad. Herráez says he has already trained with the squad and is available for selection to face the Citizens.

AS state Alaba underwent an MRI scan and the results showed he ‘suffers from a contracture in the adductor of his right leg’. This makes the former Bayern Munich star ‘doubtful until the day of the match’. 

Alaba ‘went out on the pitch to touch the ball, but very lightly’ yesterday.

Casemiro, meanwhile, has worked in the gym and then joined Mariano ‘for a run’ on the training ground on Sunday.

Mariano, Luka Jović and Eden Hazard will not travel with the squad to face Manchester City tomorrow as the trio are still recovering from injuries.
