Real Madrid have confirmed that Toni Kroos picked up a muscular injury during Los Blancos‘ 3-2 win away at Real Betis on Saturday night.
The German midfielder had to come off just before half time due to the inconvenience.
“After the tests carried out today our player Toni Kroos by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a muscular injury in the left gluteus medius,” Real Madrid‘s statement read.
In principle, and taking into account that Kroos is a player who always tends to shorten his recovery time, Zinedine Zidane will be without the 30-year-old for the next 10 to 14 days.
This injury could see Kroos miss Germany‘s next fixtures during the upcoming international break, too.
From a Real Madrid perspective, Zidane will not be able to call upon Kroos for the matches against Real Valladolid and Levante, and the goal is to have him back ready after the international break.
Kroos joins Eder Militao and Mariano Diaz on the treatment table, but Zidane could recover three players for the Valladolid game in Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio and Marcelo.
