Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric faces several weeks on the sidelines after suffering a leg muscle injury during Croatia’s draw with Wales.

The 34-year-old Ballon d’Or winner hobbled off the pitch in Cardiff towards the end of Sunday night’s Euro 2020 qualifier after colliding with a Wales player.

A medical update published by Real on Tuesday night said Modric had been diagnosed with a bruised quadriceps on his right leg.

This injury typically demands a recovery period of at least two to three weeks while more moderate damage could require a six-to-eight-week layoff.
