Spanish newspaper MARCA reported Modric will miss the next two La Liga games against Almeria and Real Sociedad. There is a high chance that he will miss the Copa Del Rey final against Osasuna on May 6. He's also in doubt for the first leg of the UEFA Champions League's semifinal against Manchester City. The first leg will take place on May 9 in Madrid.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the media ahead of Saturday's clash against Almeria and also Modric's injury. "He is injured. We don't know when he will be back. We will see for the Copa del Rey final but we don't know. We're sad, I hope he will return very soon".

Luka Modric has been a key player for Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid in recent years. The 2018 Ballon d'Or winner became a regular starter since he joined the Spanish club in the summer of 2012. Since then, he had a crucial role at the club. Real Madrid managed to win five editions of the UEFA Champions League on top of everything else during this time period. Ancelotti hopes to have him back for the first leg of the semifinals against Manchester City, but it's not guaranteed that he will be back in time.
