Toni Kroos will be out at least six weeks with a foot injury he picked up during the last match between Real Madrid and Leganes.

The German midfielder could complete the game with said injury but felt some discomfort in Germany. The doctors of the German national team ran some tests on his right foot and discovered the injury, which will force him to miss the Madrid Derby, El Clasico against Barcelona and the two decisive Champions League matches against Borussia Dortmund and Sporting Portugal.

Casemiro is also injured right now, so coach Zinedine Zidane will be forced to keep using Mateo Kovacic and Isco now that Luka Modric has recovered from his knee injury. Kovacic did a good job replacing Modric and will have to keep his good form going now that Kroos is out of the team.

This is the first time Kroos has a significant injury since he signed for Real Madrid in the summer of 2014.
