Zidane is left without Lucas

The Madrid right-back suffered a collision with the Barcelona midfielder and was unable to continue, with pain in his left knee. Odriozola entered his place. Liverpool is in danger.


Bad news for Zidane in the first part of the Classic, in which everything smiled at Real Madrid. The white team went to the break with a 2-0 that anticipated a placid victory, but Lucas Vázquez had to be substituted in the 43rd minute after suffering a strong collision with Busquets and taking a blow to his left knee. After the first examinations, it was seen that the Galician had a traumatic blow to his knee with his rival, and this Sunday they will carry out tests to determine the exact extent of the injury.

The crash took place in minute 38 'and required medical attention for the Galician side, who despite this tried to continue and finish the first half, waiting for a medical examination at half-time to assess whether or not he could play the second half . However, shortly after, Lucas found that he was not able to continue and Zidane gave Odriozola entry at 43'

Now the question is to assess the extent of the Galician's injury for what is to come: Madrid plays the return of the Champions League quarterfinals against Liverpool on Wednesday at Anfield, to defend the 3-1 harvested in the Going. If Lucas is not available, Zidane will have to pull Odriozola, as he has numerous losses in defense: Carvajal, Ramos and Varane are not there (with COVID, it may be that he reaches Anfield).
