Douglas Costa could miss Champions League clash vs. Real Madrid
Real Madrid may have one less danger man to worry about when facing Bayern Munich in this season’s Champions League quarter-final stage, as Brazil international Douglas Costa is struggling to find fitness ahead of the big tie.
According to media in Germany, the Bayern winger’s left knee could have a serious problem, with initial checks not appreciating the full extent of the injury.
The rest of Costa’s season is in jeopardy as a result, as he may have to go under the knife to get back on the mend.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk wide man hasn’t travelled with Brazil’s national team during the current international break, and is instead being given a full assessment by Bayern’s medical staff to discover if he needs an operation or not.
Die Roten could opt for a different form of treatment, which could see the Brazilian risked for the Real Madrid clash, but it is thought that the club will not take any unnecessary gambles.
