The Germany international, who scored Real's third goal, was carried off on a stretcher after landing awkwardly late in the second half and may be a doubt for the Copa del Rey final against Atletico Madrid on May 17.

"He has an ankle problem and we hope that the evolution is good," assistant coach Aitor Karanka said.

"We have to wait and we'll see in the next few days how he is."
