Real Madrid have published a medical report about midfielder Isco Alarcon, who suffers a hamstring injury and could miss around two weeks.

Following the tests carried out today on our player Isco Alarcón by Real Madrid’s medical department, he has been diagnosed with a hamstring injury to his right thigh. His recovery will continue to be assessed.

As always, muscle injuries are extremely tricky and even more so in this current scenario after three months of quarantine. That’s mainly the reason why coach Zinedine Zidane and Isco himself won’t be able to rush back.

All things considered, Isco will likely miss at least Real Madrid’s next six or seven games, assuming he recovers in two weeks. While Isco should definitely be ready to make an impact when Madrid take on Manchester City for the second leg of the Champions League’s Round of 16, it looks like Zidane will not be able to count on Isco for the majority of the Liga season.
