Bravo, Sandro passed fit for Cup final
Barcelona have received a boost with the news that Claudio Bravo and Sandro Ramirez will be fit for the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla. Goalkeeper Bravo has not played since sustaining a calf injury in the 2-0 win at Real Betis at the end of April. Sandro, meanwhile, has been out of action since February with a thigh strain. Manager Luis Enrique is now expected to have all his players available for the final game of the season, played at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday.
Real Mad. 12.5.16
Gareth Bale is a doubt for Real Madrid's crunch title clash at Deportivo La Coruna this weekend. The Welshman missed last week's win against Valencia with a knee injury but was expected to return for the trip to Galicia, where Zinedine Zidane's men must win and hope Barcelona drop points. However, Bale is now considered unlikely to start at Deportivo as the club's medical department look to return him to the side in perfect fitness for the Champions League final on May 28.
Vermaelen passed fit to return
Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen has been declared fit to return to action after recovering from his latest injury setback. The Belgium international has been out for a month with a calf injury but is now in contention to make the squad for Barcelona's final two games of the season. Vermaelen is unlikely to start either fixture for the Catalans, with Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano firmly established as the club's first-choice central-defensive pairing, but he could be included on the bench.
Real Mad. 9.5.16
Vazquez should be available for CL Final
Real Madrid released the medical report on Lucas Vazquez, who injured his knee during Real's 3-2 win against Valencia. Following the tests, he has been diagnosed with a medial collateral sprain in his left knee. Vazquez should be available for the Champions League Final, if reports from Spain are accurate, although he will most likely miss Real's next game against Deportivo.
Real Mad. 8.5.16
Modric ruled out
Real Madrid are without midfielder Luka Modric for their must-win La Liga match against Valencia, but Karim Benzema and Casemiro are back in the starting XI. The Croatian's absence is merely a precaution, while Keylor Navas and Gareth Bale are also unavailable after sustaining injuries in midweek.
Tremoulinas out for rest of season
Sevilla defender Benoit Tremoulinas is out for the rest of the season and will miss the Europa League final because of a ruptured meniscus on his left knee. The France international, expected to be sidelined for about four weeks, will undergo surgery next week. Sevilla recently also lost Denmark midfielder Michael Krohn-Dehli, who broke his left knee and will be out of action for at least seven months after undergoing surgery.

Bale and Navas suffer injuries
Real Madrid have announced that forward Gareth Bale has a knee problem and goalkeeper Keylor Navas has Achilles tendon injury. Both players completed the 90 minutes in Wednesday's 1-0 UEFA Champions League semifinal win over Manchester City, but the club have confirmed that they have picked up injuries that look set to see them miss Sunday's La Liga game against Valencia. Karim Benzema and Casemiro, who missed the City game due to fitness issues, have returned to training but it remains to be seen if they will be risked against Valencia.
Bravo set for tests on calf strain
Barcelona are sweating on the fitness of Claudio Bravo after the Chile international goalkeeper was forced from the field during the latter stages of Saturday's 2-0 win at Real Betis. The 33-year-old suffered a calf strain and was replaced by Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the 88th minute. Bravo is set to undergo further tests to examine the extent of the setback on Sunday.
Krohn-Dehli sidelined for 7 months
Sevilla midfielder Michael Krohn-Dehli, 32, will be sidelined for at least seven months after undergoing surgery on a broken left knee. The Denmark midfielder suffered the gruesome injury on Thursday during the 2-2 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League semifinals. He was carried off the pitch in the 73rd minute, less than 15 minutes after going on as a substitute. The operation took place on Friday once the team had returned to Spain.
Real Mad. 29.4.16
Ronaldo and Benzema still out
Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema will miss Real Madrid's league match on Saturday as they focus on recovering from injury to face Manchester City next week. Real coach Zinedine Zidane confirmed his side will be without their two top scorers when they travel to play Real Sociedad on Saturday, just days before they host City in their Champions League semi-final second leg. Zidane's side need a win to stay in La Liga's title race.
Real Mad. 28.4.16
Ronaldo will undergo stem cell treatment
Cristiano Ronaldo will have stem cell treatment in a bid to rush the Real Madrid star back from a hamstring tear in time to face Manchester City on Wednesday. Doctors use a sample of healthy cells from the player's blood or bone marrow, which is then injected into the problem area to help speed up recovery. Ronaldo has already been ruled out of this Saturday's trip to Real Sociedad and Zinedine Zidane is not expected to know whether he will have the 31-year-old back until the day of the City game.
Atletico M 27.4.16
Simeone banned for rest of Liga season
Diego Simeone has been given a three-game touchline ban which will see him sit out the remainder of Atletico Madrid's league season. The Argentine was sent to the stands during his side's 1-0 win over Malaga last Saturday after a ball boy to threw a ball onto the pitch as Malaga were counter-attacking in first-half injury-time. While it has not been proven whether Simeone was behind the ball entering play, the rules state that the manager is responsible for what happens around his technical area. Simeone will miss the three final games of the season against Rayo Vallecano, Levante and Celta Vigo as his side fight Barcelona and Real Madrid for the title.
