Zidane suffers another blow as Isco is sidelined ...adding to growing injury list.

Real Madrid's injury worries have continued with midfielder Isco suffering a hamstring injury.

The 27-year-old Spain international, who has featured in both of Real's games so far, joins a growing injury list at the Santiago Bernabeu just two weeks into the new campaign.

'Our player has been diagnosed with a muscular injury in the right femoral biceps. His recovery will continue to be monitored,' read a club statement on Wednesday.

Isco joins James Rodriguez, who has been ruled out of the weekend trip to Villarreal with a calf injury, on the sidelines.

Attacking midfielder Marco Asensio is likely to miss the rest of the campaign with a knee injury picked up in pre-season.

New signings Eden Hazard and Rodrygo have yet to make their debuts due to muscle problems while back-up striker Mariano Diaz has a similar issue and none are likely to feature on Sunday.

Real Madrid are unbeaten after their opening two games of the new campaign. Los Blancos beat Celta Vigo 3-1 in the first game of the season, before being held to a 1-1 draw with Valladolid.
