Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker were injured in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final between Atletico and Manchester City on Wednesday night. Two Skyblues officials have already been ruled out of the FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool.
After last weekend’s spectacular Premier League match against Liverpool (2-2), Manchester City are doing it again this weekend, this time in the FA Cup semi-final (4:30pm on Saturday). One thing is certain: there will be changes in the eleven lined up by Pep Guardiola, as the Catalan will not be able to rely on two of its officials: Kevin de Bruyne and Kyle Walker, who were injured on Wednesday evening during the league run. Quarterfinal return champion (0-0).
De Bruyne expected against Real
According to the first examinations conducted, the Belgian midfielder, who dazzled against the Reds in the league, must be absent for ten days. Which will potentially allow him to return for the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid (26 April).
For side kile walkers who are also out with an injury and who suffer from an ankle injury, additional examinations will be required to determine the length of their unavailability. On the other hand, both the players have crashed out of the semi-finals of the FA Cup. A blow to Skyblues considering the performances of the two men last weekend.
