Luka Modric has provided an update on his teammate Eduardo Camavinga following a concerning injury incident during their 1-0 victory against Getafe in La Liga on Saturday. Modric has shared information regarding Camavinga’s condition. The 20-year-old Frenchman sustained the injury during Real’s 1-0 victory over Getafe on Saturday, necessitating his substitution in the 84th minute.
Camavinga’s injury occurred following a challenge from Juan Iglesias, which caused him to twist his knee. However, the subsequent tests conducted at Valdebebas on Sunday provided encouraging results, ruling out any significant damage and confirming that he had only suffered a bruise.
Modric confirmed in a pre-match press conference about Camavinga’s availability for the crucial encounter at the Etihad Stadium, where his team will attempt to overturn the 1-1 draw from the first leg.
“He is OK, and he’s going to play, that’s the most important thing. Since he’s arrived he’s grown a lot, he has proven that he can play very well at left-back. He doesn’t like playing there, but he’s doing well, and I hope that wherever he plays he does well tomorrow.”
Camavinga has been a standout performer for Real Madrid throughout the season, particularly since assuming the left-back position due to Ferland Mendy’s injury. His versatility and impact on the field have made him an integral part of the team’s success. With the semi-final finely poised, Camavinga’s potential return to full fitness would be a significant boost for Real Madrid as they strive to secure a spot in the Champions League final.
The young midfielder’s commitment to recovering quickly demonstrates his determination to contribute to the team’s cause. Real Madrid fans will eagerly await updates on Camavinga’s progress and hope to see him on the pitch for the crucial clash against Manchester City. His presence and skills will undoubtedly strengthen Real Madrid’s chances of achieving a positive result and progressing to the final stage of the prestigious tournament.
