Pepe to Miss Real’s Next 3 Matches With Thigh Injury

Real Madrid defender Pepe will miss at least the next ten days through injury, according to the club.

The Portuguese centre-back linked up with his international team-mates after the Clasico defeat by Barcelona on 22 March, but did not play against Serbia despite training one day.

He headed straight for the Sanitas-La Moraleja on his arrival in Madrid for tests and the club have confirmed he has a “muscle injury in his right thigh.”

He is set to miss three matches: against Granada on Sunday, Rayo Vallecano next Wednesday and Eibar on Saturday, 11 April.
