Real Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez is likely to miss the club's return to La Liga against Eibar on Sunday after they confirmed he has sustained a thigh injury.
"After tests carried out on our player Nacho Fernandez by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right thigh," a club statement read on Monday.
