Real Madrid will be without midfielder Marco Asensio for Saturday's La Liga match against Malaga because of a right leg injury.

21-year-old Asensio has scored seven goals in 20 appearances for the European and Spanish champions.

Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says: 'It's not much, but he has something. So like always, it is better that he is out three or four days than hurting himself even more.'

His four goals in the Spanish top flight makes him the team's top scorer alongside fellow midfielder Isco.



Talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has 10 goals overall for Madrid, but has only managed one in the league so far this season.

Madrid host Malaga on Saturday, needing a win to keep pace with league leaders Barcelona.

The Catalan club visit second-place Valencia on Sunday and are already 10 points clear of their rivals.
