Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos sprains knee ligaments

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos sprains knee ligaments

Madrid have found the Estadio Benito Villamarin a happy hunting ground in recent years, winning 5-0 and 6-1 either side of a 1-1 draw in their last three visits, and they have only lost three times to Betis in 30 meetings.

Real's statement did not give a timeframe on Kroos's recovery, but medical sources consulted by AS say the German can expect to be out for at least a fortnight.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Marcelo and Co enjoyed a light session under the watchful gaze of Zinedine Zidane.

Just months after guiding Real to a second Champions League title in as many seasons, seeing them become the first club to retain the trophy in the post-European Cup era, Zidane has come under fire after poor domestic results.

"I want to get to the end of the season".

"In a team like Real Madrid, arguments always arise when things are not going well", Kroos said, via Marca.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos faces a spell on the sidelines after his club confirmed on Friday that he had picked up a knee injury.

Zinedine Zidane's side, who are again 17 points behind pace-setters Barcelona, had boosted morale and confidence with a 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday.

That means he will miss Liga Santander matches against Betis, Leganes, Alaves and Espanyol and is a doubt for the following weekend against Getafe.
