Vinicius Jr. set to miss nearly two months with leg muscle injury

Bad news for Brazil and Real Madrid as their starlet has been sidelined

Vinicius Jr. has been ruled out for around 6-8 weeks with leg muscle injury, sustained during Brazil’s 2-1 loss against Colombia on Thursday.

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.
