UCL: Ancelotti reveals Real Madrid injury blow ahead of Manchester City trip

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has said Eduardo Camavinga twisted his knee during the 5-0 win over Getafe on Saturday.

Ancelotti made eight changes from the starting XI that drew 1-1 with Manchester City in the first leg in Madrid.

But Camavinga, who started against the Premier League champions, limped off the pitch in the final minutes of the La Liga game.

Ancelotti has allayed fears about his fitness ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg at the Etihad on Wednesday.

“He twisted his knee, but it’s just a knock,” Ancelotti said.

“Tomorrow he’ll rest like everyone who played and I hope that on Monday he trains with the team.

“He’ll recover soon for sure. The knee is stable, he has some discomfort now but the important thing is the stability and he has that 100%. He has some discomfort in the knee but it’s nothing.”
