Khedira out for two to three weeks

Real Madrid's German midfielder Sami Khedira will be out of action for two to three weeks after suffering a thigh injury in the UEFA Champions League match against Lyon, the club said today.

Tests on Wednesday showed the player had suffered a strain in his left thigh and "it is estimated he will be out for two to three weeks," it said.

Khedira, signed from Stuttgart last year, went off in the 68th minute of Real's 1-1 draw with Lyon in the first leg of the last-16 tie.
