James Rodríguez left the field on Saturday earlier than expected, suffering pain in his right leg that made him request the substitution. As Ancelotti stated in the post-match press conference, he had some muscular problem that had made him feel uncomfortable and deeper tests would be performed during the weekend.

Real Madrid's official medical report has been released a few minutes ago and it has confirmed most conjectures out there. James has been diagnosed with a "muscleinjury of degree one in his right leg's internal calf muscle". Experts on the issue claim that two weeks would be the estimated recovery time for such an injury, although there is no word about it in Real Madrid's report.

Real Madrid will travel to Morocco next Sunday to take part in the FIFA Club World Cup, and that would be just eight days after James first suffered the pain, so his participation in such an event seems quite unlikely. Hopefully, he will be ready to help his partners in January, when Real Madrid will have a great number of complicated games, both in La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
