Kroos set to be fit for Juventus clash
Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos is expected to be fit for his side’s crunch Champions League semi-final, second leg against Juventus on Wednesday after fears over a hip injury were allayed on Sunday.
The German World Cup winner had to be replaced midway through the first half of Madrid’s 2-2 draw with Valencia on Saturday which all but ended their La Liga title hopes.
“Thank you for your kind messages! I’ve just been through the examination. Dont worry. Let’s focus on Wednesday,” Kroos posted on his official Twitter account.
Kroos’s presence would be a huge boost to Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti as his side try to turn around a 2-1 first-leg deficit with another influential midfielder Luka Modric already sidelined by a knee ligament injury.
