Vinicius Jr Injury Blow For Real Madrid

Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr is set for a spell on the sidelines after getting injured in his thigh while playing for Brazil.

The 23 year old limped off just after 27 minutes in Brazil’s 2-1 defeat to Colombia on Friday, November 17 at the Estadio Metropolitano.

Gabriel Martinelli opened the scoring in the 4th minute but a second half brace by Liverpool forward Luis Diaz gave the Colombians the victory.

Initial tests carried out by the Brazilian team doctors showed an injury he sustained on his left thigh earlier similar to the injury he had on his right leg earlier in the year which ruled him out for four weeks.

Physicians had estimated that he would be sidelined and out of action for six weeks at most, but a further scan carried out has indicated the impact on the tendon in his hamstring.

He is also set to be unavailable for all Real Madrid’s remaining UEFA Champions League group stage games.

He joins Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Thibaut Courteous on the sidelines at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Vinicius has made three appearances and notched one assist for Brazil in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

He has played 10 Laliga games for Real Madrid this season yielding four goals and one assist.

Real Madrid have totalled 32 points from 13 Laliga fixtures this season and they are second in the Spanish top flight.
