Real Madrid's Jese tore his ACL

Real Madrid was playing Schalke in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. They came into the game with a huge 6-1 lead in the aggregate, and six away goals in the bag and Schalke would need a miracle to advance.

Unfortunately for Real Madrid, Jese went down early in the game with a knee injury. After writhing in pain on the pitch, a stretcher was called for and Gareth Bale was brought on.

There was a later update that Jese tore his ACL.


If you missed the play, it was early in the game. You can see it below, it isn’t as graphic as other injuries I’ve seen and it is almost hard to tell that the injury occurred.
