Zinedine Zidane handed fresh blow as Real Madrid’s injury list mounts with Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric sidelined by a muscle problem

  • Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has been ruled out with a muscle injury 
  • The Croatian has an unknown return date after injury to his right leg adductor

A statement from the Spanish club confirmed the Croatian ‘has been diagnosed with a muscular injury to the adductor in his right leg’ and so will certainly miss the weekend’s meeting with Levante.
