Angel DiMaria Injured: Out Indefinitely With Thigh Muscle Tear

Thigh muscle tear will sideline DiMaria for the Copa del Ray Match on Tuesday and for the upcoming tie at the weekend.

This isn't very good news folks--not only is Sergio Ramos out, but now, according to SkySports, midfielder Angel DiMaria suffered a muscle tear in his thigh during today's last training session of the year. The team hasn't released an official statement about how long he'll be out; it all depends on how bad the tear is. Tears are tricky things -- try to rush back and you'll boom back to square one.

I'm not so worried about the last 16 first leg against Malaga in the Copa del Ray, but we need him healthy for league play, that's for sure. We're only three points up on FC Barcelona and I'd rather not lose points anywhere down the line. While he's a cog in the offensive wheel, I think we have the players to be able to plug that hole, though this might mean starting Kaka and Ozil together.

I'll keep you updated as I learn more.
