Injury Concerns loom for Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr ahead of Clasico after Champions League Clash

Real Madrid’s gritty advancement to the Champions League semi-finals after a tough battle with Manchester City might come with a price tag. Vinicius Jr, the team’s dynamic forward, now finds himself in doubt for the upcoming Clasico showdown next Sunday.

Despite his inclusion in Carlo Ancelotti’s starting XI, Vinicius struggled to make an impact against a resolute Manchester City side.

Hindered by their relentless pressure, the Brazilian prodigy found himself stifled by the defensive prowess of his counterpart, Kyle Walker.

His occasional bursts of brilliance were swiftly snuffed out. A worrying sign emerged when Vinicius was replaced by Lucas Vasquez during extra time.

Concerns about Vinicius Jr’s fitness

Reports from SPORT suggest that Vinicius Jr himself requested to be substituted due to muscular discomfort.

Observers noted his apparent difficulty in walking properly as he left the field. Real Madrid, understandably concerned, plans to conduct medical assessments in Madrid on Thursday to determine the extent of Vinicius’s injury.

While initial indications suggest it may not be a serious setback, his availability for the upcoming Clasico remains uncertain. This situation warrants close attention in the coming days.
