Real Madrid will not catch a break. Los Blancos have published the medical report on Karim Benzema's injury after the French had to be taken out of Saturday's Derby against Atlético, and it's not looking good.

After the tests on Karim Benzema, the player has been diagnosed with a hamstring injury.

That's it, as usual. Real Madrid never make estimations on how long the player will be out, but it could take a month -- or even more -- for Benzema to be ready. This means that the French attacker will miss the return leg against AS Roma and possibly the first leg of the Quarterfinals if Real Madrid go through.

Real's doctors are having quite a busy time with the roster. Marcelo, Bale and Pepe are also injured, with Pepe and Bale initially expected to be recovered by now.

Zidane and his coaching staff need Benzema and this is a devastating injury for Los Blancos.
