Laliga league leader Real Madrid will face Premier League leader Manchester City in The UEFA Champion League semi-final. Pep Guardiola’s City have won, but will be without a key player, and perhaps even more, who could be out of the first leg at the Etihad Stadium a few weeks ago.

Joao Cancelo, who has been handed a yellow card and will be suspended from Real Madrid in Manchester, will definitely miss out. He is an integral part of Pep’s team, which will have to fill his void when he faces Carlo Ancelotti.

And he will not be the only one injured, as Kevin de Bruyne is injured in the 65th minute. The Belgian has left his place at Sterling after performing an action on the bench which shows his physical problems are not minor.

Kyle Walker also had to leave early after twisting his ankle and was unfortunately injured after a few minutes he was unable to continue on the pitch.

Both are skeptical of the clash with Real Madrid, which took place on April 26 or 27, just two weeks from the second leg of the quarter-final.
