Real Madrid have published the medical report on Keylor Navas, who will miss 10-15 days with a groin injury even though he completed Real’s match against Tottenham Hotspur without a problem, even being one of the team’s best players.

“Following tests carried out on Keylor Navas, he has been diagnosed with an injury to his right adductor muscle. His recovery will continue to be monitored.

Even though it’s not a serious and concerning injury, it’s clear that Navas will need to be patient with this one if he wants to stay healthy this season. The adductor is an important muscle to kick the ball and Navas will probably need more than these two weeks to be at 100%.

Kiko Casilla will be the player replacing Keylor Navas in the team’s starting lineup as he did last week against Getafe. Mohamed Ramos Wade will now be the team’s reserve goalkeeper at least until Luca Zidane recovers from his injury.
