Real Madrid's preparation for next month's UEFA Champions League final has been marred by a major injury setback.

The Spanish giants' victory over German Bundesliga powerhouses, Bayern Munich, could be overshadowed by this blow to their squad.

Real Madrid are eyeing their 15th Champions League title but will likely miss a key player for the final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1, 2024.

Joselu emerged as the hero with two crucial goals in the final moments, sealing a memorable triumph at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti.

Real Madrid, who are vying for their record-extending 15th Champions League title, will face Borussia Dortmund as their next obstacle in the final.

However, an injury setback is looming over them prior to the showdown at Wembley on June 1. French midfielder, Aurelien Tchouameni's participation is uncertain after he was hurt in the clash against Bayern.

Fabrizio Romano took to social media to shed more light on this development.

"Aurélien Tchouaméni has been diagnosed with a stress injury in his left foot. '[Evaluation] pending', Real Madrid reports. 23 days to go for the Champions League final."

A statement from the club, via Sports Mole, confirmed the contents of Fabrizio's tweet and the Frenchman is now a major doubt for the Champions League final.

How Tchouameni has fared this season

Tchouameni has proved crucial for Ancelotti's team in the 2023/24 season, featuring in 38 matches across all competitions.

Despite a left foot fracture late last year that sidelined him for five La Liga fixtures and three Champions League group-stage matches, the 24-year-old returned without issue.

He has even filled in as a centre-back occasionally to address the team's defensive injuries and would be sorely missed by his team.

Dortmund send Bellingham message

Sports Brief previously reported on Dortmund sending Jude Bellingham a message ahead of their Champions League final meeting.

The English star spent more than three years at Dortmund between 2020 and 2023 before he sealed a dream move to Real Madrid.

Barely months after his marquee move, Bellingham is scheduled to come up against his former team in the Champions League final.
