Carlo Ancelotti’s side take on Liverpool in the finals of the UEFA Champions League in one week’s time, and have been handed a major boost following the final matchday of the Premier League season.

According to reports from Sky Sports, the Premier League side will likely be without their midfield star Thiago Alcantara for the game in Paris.

The Spanish international started Liverpool’s final league clash against Wolves earlier but was forced off at half-time owing to an injury. The former Bayern Munich man was involved in his team’s equaliser in the first half but pulled his hamstring later in the game.

Thiago’s absence comes as a big blow to Jurgen Klopp’s side. The 31-year-old has been a regular in his side’s starting XI this season, scoring one goal and providing four assists in the process.

This would be the second final Thiago would miss for his club, having already missed the League Cup final against Chelsea in February. Surprisingly, the player missed that fixture owing to a hamstring injury too.

The club have not released any official statement about the Spaniard’s injury or how long he will be out. However, recovering from a hamstring injury in less than a week is undoubtedly a big ask.

His absence hands Real Madrid a massive boost in their pursuit of the UCL title. While the Reds still have a formidable squad, Thiago’s absence will certainly help Los Blancos control the proceedings on the night,
