Luis Diaz has been out for a while. He got injured a while before the World Cup, and it was confirmed not too long after that that the Liverpool forward would not return until after the World Cup. Well. it’s February now, and he’s still not back, which sucks.
But, as of late, there have been encouraging injury updates for Luis Diaz, and right now, it seems like a return may be on the horizon.
He won’t be available in the first leg, but that’s fine.
Diaz has been on the sidelines since early October, picking up an injury in a 3-2 loss to Arsenal, and being subbed off at the 41st minute. He has been recovering since, and it’s just been a really long wait for all people associated with Liverpool, Diaz included.
I am very sure that Diaz is itching to get back onto the pitch, because it’s been so long since he has played, and he adds another dimension to Liverpool’s attack when he’s on the pitch. Of course, they do have really good players apart from the Colombian.
Liverpool signed Cody Gakpo in the winter transfer window, and he’s been playing in Diaz’s position since. It remains to be seen what happens with them when everyone’s at full fitness.
Of course, Diaz will be missed in the first leg of the Real Madrid clash but he faces a race against time to be fit for the second leg, and if he is there, Liverpool will definitely have a better chance of winning the game, because their right back, Dani Carvajal, hasn’t really had the best of weeks as of late, and even though he put in a really good performance against Liverpool in the Champions League final,

I don’t know if the same output will be seen from the Spaniard, and Diaz could potentially capitalise on that.
