Real Madrid injury news: Alaba’s knee sprain nothing to worry about

Real Madrid CF completed a comfortable “revenge” victory over Sheriff Tiraspol on Wednesday and booked their spot in the Round-of-16 in the UEFA Champions League. However, there were some worrying scenes as centre-back David Alaba was substituted after complaining of discomfort in his left knee.

The 3-0 victory over Sheriff was the perfect result for Los Blancos, who suffered a shock defeat against the Moldovan team when they met earlier in the group stage. It was a much-needed win for the 13-time European Champions, who needed to bury the humiliation of losing to the tournament newcomers.
