Real Madrid star Marco Asensio injured 'shaving his legs' will miss Champions League clash

Real Madrid's newest sensation Marco Asensio is to sit out tonight's Champions League clash with APOEL Nicosia with an infected spot.

It is reported that the 21-year-old sustained the injury shaving his legs, although Real manager Zinedine Zidane refused to confirm that rumour.

"He has a pimple on his leg which means he cannot lift his sock," said the laughing Frenchman.

Spanish outlet ABC, however, have reported that a hair got infected after use of a razor.

Asensio has scored four goals in Real Madrid's opening six games of the season and Zidane is hopeful of having the attacking midfielder available for Sunday's game against Real Sociedad.
