Real Madrid Marcelo and Luka Modric will be out of action with injuries

Madrid, Spain – Real Madrid have confirmed that Marcelo and Luka Modric are both set for spells on the sidelines following injuries sustained against Malaga.

In a statement by the club, Marcelo was diagnosed with a grade 2 muscle injury in his left hamstring. Modric on the other hand was diagnosed with a strain in his right abductor muscle.

The pair were substituted off in Saturday’s 2-1 win for Zinedine Zidane’s side over Malaga. It adds to an injury crisis at Madrid as Dani Carvajal, Pepe and Gareth Bale are all long-term injuries while James, Danilo and Cristiano Ronaldo are all thought to be unavailable due to minor knocks.

“I’m a bit fed up with the injuries because we’ve got a lot of games ahead and I’m a bit downbeat,” Real coach Zidane said to the club’s official website on Saturday.

“We’ve got an important game on Wednesday and we’ll have to see what happens.”
