Real Madrid defender Walter Samuel has suffered a new injury blow.Real Madrid defender Walter Samuel has suffered a new injury blow which could sideline him for a few weeks.
The Argentine international picked up a knee knock in Tuesday's Copa del Rey win over Leganes.
"Samuel could be out up to two weeks, but not necessarily, if the injury turns out to be less serious," said Real Madrid doctor Juan Carlos Hernandez.
Samuel is now set to miss next week's crucial UEFA Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev as Real look to complete the double over the Ukrainians.
Samuel missed the start of the season with a knee problem and this new injury is a blow for the former Roma star as he tries to establish himself in the first team.
