Injury crisis at Real Madrid ahead of Liverpool trip

Liverpool travel to Madrid next Tuesday for their Champions League quarter-final clash with Real Madrid, but the Spanish giants have an injury problem.

Toni Kroos, Eden Hazard, Federico Valverde and Dani Carvajal all missed training this week. A statement from the club explained that the players were “continuing with their recovery processes.”

It is extremely unlikely that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will be fit in time for the game after his groin operation in February.
