A left thigh injury has put Sami Khedira on the sidelines for three weeks, ruling him out of Real Madrid CF’s round of 16 second leg against Olympique Lyonnais on 16 March.

Sami Khedira will miss Real Madrid CF’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 decider against Olympique Lyonnais after suffering a left thigh injury in Tuesday’s first leg.

The German international, 23, was replaced by Lassana Diarra in the 68th minute at the Stade de Gerland and tests have revealed that the defensive midfielder will be out of action for three weeks. Khedira moved to Madrid from VfB Stuttgart in the summer and has made 32 appearances in all competitions for the Merengues this season. Madrid will host Lyon at the Santiago Bernabéu on 16 March, having been pegged back by Bafétimbi Gomis’s late goal in a 1-1 draw in France.
