Sami Khedira picks up injury following Real Madrid's 5-1 against Bilbao

Real Madrid may be without the services of Sami Khedira for some time as the German midfielder went on to pick up an injury during Madrid’s 5-1 drubbing against Athletic Bilbao Saturday evening.

After 70 minutes of play, Khedira was taken off the pitch as he seemed to be having some pain around his right thigh. Although the injury does not seem to be anything serious for him or the club, the midfielder will be undergoing further medical tests to check the extent of his injury.

With Real Madrid looking to face Ajax in Champions League action this week coming up, nothing is sure if Khedira will be able to participate in the match. A statement read the following on Madrid’s official webpage:

“Sami Khedira abandoned Saturday’s match against Athletic Bilbao on 69′ with pain in the back of his right thigh and is pending medical observation.”

Think that Real Madrid will be affected if Khedira’s injury turns out to be worse than expected? Who would you want to see replacing him if it is? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
