Real Madrid doctors have examined the forward’s condition and have estimated that he has a torn muscle in his leg, which is bound to keep him out of play for a significant period of time.
The Spanish club did not reveal the timetable for the injury, but it is believed to be around two months.
“Vinícius has been diagnosed with a tear in his left femoral bicep which is affecting the tendon in his hamstring. His recovery will be monitored,” the club announced.
The loss of Vinicius is a worrying signs for the 14-time Champions League winners as the Brazilian is one of their key players, having scored six times this season, three of which have come in the last two games.
