Camavinga’s Ankle Woe: Real Madrid’s Midfield Maestro in Race Against Time for City Showdown

Eduardo Camavinga suffered an ankle injury while on international duty with France, which might sideline him for Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg against Manchester City on April 9. The injury occurred before halftime during a friendly match against Marseille, and it’s reported as a sprain. Camavinga is set to return to Madrid for medical tests, with early indications suggesting a recovery timeframe of at least two weeks, putting his participation against Manchester City in doubt​.

Carlo Ancelotti faces a significant dilemma with Eduardo Camavinga’s potential absence due to an ankle injury. Losing such a versatile player for the crucial Champions League clash against Manchester City is a cause for concern, putting additional pressure on Real Madrid’s midfield options. Ancelotti now must reassess his strategy to compensate for Camavinga’s likely absence, a challenge given the midfielder’s impact and the high stakes of the upcoming match.
