Pepe ‘major doubt’ for CL final

Real Madrid could be without Pepe for the Champions League final after the defender suffered a calf injury.

Marca reports that the Portugal international should miss two weeks, and having gone down with the problem in the final minutes of Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Real Valladolid at Jose Zorilla, Pepe would be cutting it close to make the game.

Madrid are definitely without Xabi Alonso for the match against Atletico Madrid as the midfielder is suspended, while Cristiano Ronaldo was replaced after only eight minutes of the fixture in midweek.
