UCL: Real Madrid suffers double injury blow after eliminating Chelsea

Real Madrid

Real Madrid has suffered a double injury blow after eliminating Chelsea from the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, confirmed that two of his players, Karim Benzema and David Alaba, suffered injuries during their Champions League quarter-final second-leg win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Benzema and Alaba could miss Real Madrid’s next few matches in the coming days as a result of the injury.

Recall that a brace from Rodrygo helped Real Madrid ease past Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final stage on a 4-0 aggregate win.

However, it was not all good news for the La Liga champions, as Benzema and Alaba were substituted due to injuries.

But Ancelotti has now confirmed that Alaba was taken off at half-time because of a hamstring issue, while Benzema had a foot issue after a stomp from Chelsea defender Thiago Silva in the first half.

“Alaba has had a problem, his hamstring was tight and we had made the change at the end of the first half.

“Karim had a blow, a stomp on his foot, it started to bother him at the end and we changed him,” Ancelotti was quoted by 90Min as saying.
