Argentina winger expected to miss Copa del Rey clash

Real Madrid have been hit with the news that Angel Di Maria has suffered a muscle tear, which could rule him out of action for a sustained period. The Argentina winger damaged a thigh muscle during the club's final training session of the year and he's not expected to play any part in Los Blancos' Copa del Rey last-16, first leg clash at home to Malaga on Tuesday night. Although the La Liga giants have not indicated how long Di Maria would be sidelined for, he could well miss their next league game at home to Granada next Saturday, depending on the seriousness of his injury. The 23-year-old has been a huge success at the Santiago Bernabeu this season and has played a key role in head coach Jose Mourinho's plans.
