Real Madrid loses Vazquez and Kovacic to injury

Real Madrid will be without midfielders Lucas Vazquez and Mateo Kovacic when the team returns to action in 2017 after picking up injuries in its successful Club World Cup campaign.

Vazquez suffered a right leg injury in the 4-2 final win over Kashima Antlers in Japan and will be sidelined for up to four weeks, according to Spanish sports daily.

He is likely to miss the Spanish Cup last-16 game against Sevilla on Jan. 4 and 12 as well as three La Liga matches.

Croatian midfielder Kovacic will miss the first leg of the cup clash with Sevilla with a ankle knock also picked up in the tournament in Japan.
