Eden Hazard is officially out of Real Madrid's Champions League tie with Man City at the Santiago Bernabeu in midweek.
The Belgian winger was substituted during Los Blancos' 1-0 loss to Levante after returning from a three-month injury.
The 28-year-old was brought down by a Levante player while trying to defend for Real as he struggled to get back on his feet and limped all through the match before he was subbed off for Vinicius Junior.
Real Madrid have confirmed the injury to their star stating that the former Chelsea star suffered a fracture to his right distal fibula.
"Following the tests carried out today on our player, Eden Hazard, by the Real Madrid medical department, he has been diagnosed with a fracture to his right distal fibula. His recovery will continue to be assessed."
Zinedine Zidane's side loss to Levante saw them drop to second place on the La Liga table after losing five points in two matches.
After the midweek game with City, Los Merengues will host their fiercest rivals Barcelona in the second El clasico of the season at the weekend.
