Real Madrid boss Ancelotti provides Eduardo Camavinga injury update ahead of Man City 2nd leg


Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has, late on Saturday, provided an update on the wellbeing of Eduardo Camavinga.

For those not aware, midfield sensation Camavinga set pulses racing across the Real fanbase a short time ago.

This came upon Los Blancos welcoming Getafe to the Santagio Bernabeu, for a La Liga clash.

When all was said and done, the evening’s hosts got the job done, albeit just about, thanking Marco Asensio’s latest fine strike 20 minutes from time for an eventual 1-0 win.

On an otherwise positive night for Real, however, one major concern was too forthcoming, on the personnel front.

This came upon Eduardo Camavinga limping out of proceedings a little over five minutes from time, with what was later revealed to be a knee problem:

Speaking to the media post-match, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his midfield standout’s fitness was put to Carlo Ancelotti.

This of course comes as Real Madrid prepare to make the trip to England this coming week, for the 2nd-leg of the club’s Champions League semi-final showdown with Manchester City.

Despite claims to the contrary in the Spanish media, though, Ancelotti was quick to assure that Camavinga’s knee is ‘stable’, with the Frenchman therefore expected to be available to feature from the off at The Etihad on Wednesday night.
