Kovacic adds to Real injury woes

La Liga giants Real Madrid have this afternoon confirmed that midfielder Mateo Kovacic has suffered 'a partial tear of the adductor muscle tendon in his right thigh'.

The Croatia global lasted just 20 minutes of the European fixture before being replaced by Toni Kroos, having partially torn an adductor muscle in his right leg, and left the pitch in tears.

Kovacic lasted just 25 minutes in the win before he was replaced by Toni Kroos.

Though a timetable for the Croatian dynamo's return has not yet been provided, it is reported that he could miss at least two months of action.

The 23-year-old was immediately taken to the Moraleja University Hospital and an official diagnosis has been revealed via Los Blancos' website this afternoon and Kovavic is nearly certain to miss this weekend's La Liga clash against Real Sociedad.

In addition to Kovacic, in the game this weekend, coach Zinedine Zidane has lost Cristiano Ronaldo who underwent his latest suspension, Karim Benzema, and Marcelo who had just been sentenced to two-match suspensions.

French striker Karim Benzema is also out injured, while in-form youngster Marco Asensio missed the APOEL victory after reportedly suffering an infected pimple while shaving his legs, that Zidane said means "he can not lift his sock".
