The defender is facing being out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a hamstring strain against Atletico in the Champions League

Real Madrid have confirmed defender Dani Carvajal suffered a hamstring injury during Tuesday's 3-0 Champions League semi-final win over Atletico Madrid.

Madrid did not put a time frame on his absence but the Spain right-back is at risk of missing the rest of the season, with Zinedine Zidane's side aiming to complete a LaLiga and Champions League double.

The Champions League final is on June 3 in Cardiff and could represent a target for Carvajal's return.

The 25-year-old has made 40 appearances in all competitions for Madrid this term.
