Real Madrid star provides injury update after RB Leipzig game

Real Madrid secured an important win over the Bundesliga giants last night.

Real Madrid started the knockout stage of the Champions League on a high note as they beat RB Leipzig 1-0 in the first leg of a round-of-16 clash. This victory was recorded in an away fixture.

Brahim Diaz was the matchwinner for Los Blancos. Meanwhile, Andriy Lunin was also the hero who made nine saves on his way to a well-earned clean sheet.

Brahim talked to the media after the match (via Diario AS), and he described his winning goal, “I get the ball, I make the first feint, I see that they are afraid to go in for the tackle, they retreat a lot… And that’s where I put it in the top corner. I saw Vini and wanted to give it to him, I hesitated, but I ended up shooting. It was a nice goal.”

Brahim was forced off towards the end of the match after suffering a calf injury. He has given an update on his injury. He added, “Honestly, right now I don’t know, I’m not going to lie to you. I’ve noticed a blow and I don’t know if the soleus went up or what happened. I guess tomorrow I’ll get tested and hope that it won’t be anything.”

Carlo Ancelotti is hopeful that Brahim Diaz will be back and his injury is not too serious. He came in place for Jude Bellingham who missed out this fixture due to injury.
