Real Madrid defender Marcelo ruled out with hamstring tear

Real Madrid confirm that full-back Marcelo suffered a hamstring tear during the 1-0 defeat to Real Betis on Wednesday night, likely ruling him out for a month.

Marcelo is likely to miss the next month after Real Madrid confirmed that he suffered a hamstring tear during the shock 1-0 defeat to Real Betis on Wednesday night.

The Brazil international was taken off with a little under 20 minutes left to play at the Bernabeu, as Los Blancos' slow start to the campaign continued.

Madrid have now released a statement outlining the extent of the damage, which reports in the Spanish press suggest will keep the 29-year-old on the sidelines until the end of October.

A club statement read: "Following tests carried out on Marcelo at the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital, he has been diagnosed with a grade two tear in his left bicep femoris muscle. His recovery will be monitored."

Marcelo is expected to miss league games against Deportivo La Coruna, Espanyol, Getafe and Eibar, as well as Champions League ties against Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur either side of the international break.
