Atlético Madrid confirm Savic hamstring tear
After having to be replaced early in Sunday's LaLiga win over Levante, Atlético Madrid confirmed Stefan Savic has torn his hamstring.
Stefan Savic suffered a grade two hamstring tear in Atlético Madrid's LaLiga win against Levante, the club have announced.
Savic was replaced in the ninth minute of Sunday's 1-0 victory, which was sealed by a penalty scored by Antoine Griezmann.
The three points came at a cost, though, as Savic - who has started 12 LaLiga games this term - is set for a spell on the sidelines.
Atletico offered no timescale for Savic's recovery but he is likely to be out of action for around three to four weeks.
Savic joins Filipe Luis on the sidelines for Atletico with right-sided defender Juanfran having to fill in at left-back against Levante.
Lucas Hernandez, a transfer target for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, is back in training after more than a month out with a knee strain.
