Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio has been ruled out of Saturday's Fifa Club tournament final against Al ain when the european champions confirmed he had sustained a thigh injury.
The Spain international, who has underperformed this season and has not scored in La Liga since September, picked up the injury in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Kashima Antlers in the semifinals.
He came on as a substitute and then had to be changed fourteen minutes later.
After tests carried out on our player Marco Asensio by the medical employees, he has been diagnosed with a grade 2 injury in the quadriceps in his right leg," said a medical report from Real on Friday.
The report failed to state for how long Asensio would be on the sidelines, though local media reported he would be out for around a month.
