Real Madrid's Kroos facing two weeks out after injury confirmed

Real Madrid's Toni Kroos is set for around two weeks on the sidelines after the LaLiga club confirmed that he has picked up a knee injury.

Kroos likely to be out for at least a fortnight

"Following tests carried out on Toni Kroos by the Sanitas Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a sprain to the exterior lateral ligament in the left knee," Los Blancos said on Friday.

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.

PSG second leg early next month

Head coach Zinedine Zidane's chief objective will be to ensure that the midfielder, who featured in Wednesday's Champions League last-16 first-leg win over Paris Saint-Germain, is fit for the return on 6 March.

Before then, Real face LaLiga clashes with Real Betis (this Sunday), Leganés (21 February), Alavés (24 February), Espanyol (27 February) and Getafe (3 March).
