Real Madrid published a medical report on Marcos Llorente, who had to leave Wednesday’s El Clasico against Barcelona with a groin injury.

Following the tests carried out today on our player Marcos Llorente by the Real Madrid medical team, he has been diagnosed with a grade 2 injury to his left adductor. His recovery will continue to be assessed.

This appears to be a fairly serious injury for the midfielder, who could miss at least the following month recovering. Llorente was a nice option for Santiago Solari as he was performing very well when he first got injured after the Club World Cup. Luckily enough for Los Blancos, Casemiro is healthy, although he will have to improve his form.

Llorente will likely return for the final third of the season. Real Madrid will need him if they keep advancing in the Champions League, as he’s a player who adds a lot of depth to the squad.
