Real Madrid have been dealt a major blow as number one goalkeeper Keylor Navas sustained a thigh injury while on international duty with Costa Rica.

Navas suffered the problem during a 1-1 draw with Honduras in CONCACAF World Cup qualifier on Sunday, and a Costa Rica statement outlined the issue as a strain to ‘the vastus medialis and part of the adductor in his right thigh. The Los Blancos will be without the 30 year old as he is set to miss crucial upcoming games against Getafe on Saturday and UEFA Champions League match against English side Tottenham Hotspur.

Navas has been one of Real's most important players since the start of 2015-16, as they have won back-to-back UEFA Champions Leagues and a La Liga title.
