Preliminary reports suggest Gareth Bale will miss approximately two weeks due to a soleus muscle (calf) injury. The player only lasted two minutes in the first half before needing to be substituted. It is possible that he may have a muscle tear, but he’ll need to undergo a scan to confirm the extent of his injury. According to AS, the club announced that more won’t be known for another 24-48 hours. | © | [video]

Luka Modrić was the second player injured on the night. Early in the second half, he banged his right knee on an opposing player. Pending further testing, it’s being reported that Luka has sprained his LCL and could face five to six weeks out. | © | [video]
