Isco will miss the clash of the Real Madrid Champions League with Bayern Munich on Tuesday after not recovering from a sprained shoulder.

The Spanish midfielder suffered the injury during the first leg of the semifinal on German soil, which leads him to be replaced in the middle of his team's 2-1 victory.

Despite training with the team on Monday, Isco's name does not appear on Zinedine Zidane's team for the second leg at the Santiago Bernabéu.

However, Nacho Fernández – who missed the last month of action due to a problem in the thigh – is included.

The return of the defender would also be timely, considering that the current European champions do not have right-back Dani Carvajal due to a strained hamstring.

Having entered the defense to cover Carvajal in the Allianz Arena, the end Lucas Vázquez could return to occupy the position in the Spanish capital.
