Los Blancos go to Signal Iduna Park for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final, holding a 3-0 advantage.

But they are to do so without the Portugal international, who left training 20 minutes in on Monday complaining of knee trouble.

The Ballon d’Or winner was rested for Madrid’s 4-0 win over Real Sociedad at the weekend, but that was initially seen as just a precaution.

Carlo Ancelotti is now expected to keep Isco in the side, playing up front with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.
