Marcelo and Modric out for a month?

It is reported that Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Luka Modric will be out of action for a month through injury.

Both players had to be substituted during Los Blancos' 2-1 win over Malaga yesterday, undergoing medical examination today to determine the extent of their problems.

Though official confirmation will not come before tomorrow, Marca are reporting that both will miss the next three to four weeks of football.

Should this be the case, Marcelo and Modric will join Dani Carvajal, Gareth Bale and Pepe on the treatment table.

It is also claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo will need to be assessed after picking up a reported hand injury, as well as a minor knock. This, however, is not said to be serious. 

Madrid face Celta Vigo in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final on Wednesday, needing to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first encounter.
