What is the injury that prevents Héctor Herrera from missing the knockout matches against Manchester City?
According to information from the Colchonero club, Héctor Herrera also did not play in the last match against Alavés due to a thigh injury suffered in training last Wednesday.
As a result, the Mexican midfielder will miss the UEFA Champions League match, leaving the club's coach, Diego Pablo Simeone, without his two most trusted first-choice players on the pitch.
And the worst thing is that he will suffer these losses against the very dangerous team coached by Josep Guardiola, who defeated Sporting Lisbon with a 5-0 scoreline.
Another important loss for the Spanish team in this match is that of Yannick Carrasco, who will serve his third and final suspension. Thus, "Cholo" Simeone's team will have an even tougher test in the Champions League.
Thus, the UEFA Champions League match will be the second consecutive game in which Herrera will not be active, although until this weekend there was some optimism that the player would be ready for tomorrow's game.
The Colchonero team had hoped that after yesterday's medical tests, it would be confirmed that the player had healed, but this was not the case.
