Real Madrid goalkeeper Kepa misses Champions League game after injury in warmups

MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga missed the Champions League game against Braga after sustaining an injury during warmups on Wednesday.

Andriy Lunin got the start and saved a penalty kick six minutes into the match at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Madrid won 3-0.

Madrid did not specify Kepa's injury but Spanish media said it was a muscle problem on his right leg.

Kepa was signed this season to take the starting role of Thibaut Courtois, who will miss a big part of the season because of a knee injury.
