Llorente injured in Copa Clásico

Just after the hour mark, in what was a thrilling game, the Madrid midfielder went down on the grass and didn't take long to ask to be taken off. Apparently, Llorente complained of a muscle injury, on the inside of the left thigh. In his place came the more experienced Casemiro.

This is the second injury in the last month and a half on that area of the leg for the 24-year old. The previous incident, as Real Madrid announced in an official statement on January 1, was when the player suffered a "grade 2 injury to the left adductor."

Tests will be carried out in the coming hours and days to determined how serious this latest injury will be.
