Vinicius, Real Madrid’s Winger, Sidelined for More Than a Month Due to Hamstring Injury

Reports from Spanish media on Monday indicate that Real Madrid’s winger, Vinicius Junior, is facing a setback due to a hamstring injury, with an estimated recovery time of up to six weeks.

The club, known as Los Blancos, has officially acknowledged the injury suffered by the Brazilian player in a released statement. However, they have refrained from specifying the exact duration of his absence from the field.

Vinicius sustained the injury during the team’s recent 1-0 victory over Celta Vigo on Friday, a triumph that solidified their flawless start to the La Liga season with three wins in as many games, keeping them at the top of the league standings.

Despite the player’s initial determination to continue despite the discomfort, his condition worsened following the match, leading to concerns about his availability for the upcoming Champions League fixture set to kick off on September 19. This also implies that he will be unable to participate in crucial La Liga encounters against Real Sociedad and cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid before the Champions League campaign begins.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti remarked on Friday that Vinicius seemed eager to persist through the discomfort, suggesting that the injury may not have been particularly severe at first. However, subsequent assessments have revealed a more significant issue than initially anticipated.

According to Spanish sources, Vinicius is projected to miss somewhere between one month and six weeks of action, resulting in a potential absence from approximately five matches. Among these matches, four are within the Spanish top-flight league, while one pertains to the European competition.
