Cancelo, who has been a consistent presence in Barcelona’s lineup since joining on loan from Manchester City, missed the crucial match in Madrid. It was revealed through an RAC1 report that Cancelo received medical advice to abstain from participating. This precautionary decision was made because one of Cancelo’s relatives has been diagnosed with a heart condition, prompting club medical staff to investigate whether it could be hereditary and potentially affect the player as well.

Similarly, Christian Eriksen’s collapse during Euro 2020 and subsequent fitting of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) serve as reminders of the potential dangers associated with heart-related conditions.
