Real Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola is likely to be out for the rest of the season after breaking his collarbone.

The Spain international reportedly fell awkwardly in training after a challenge with team-mate Vinicius Junior.

The club confirmed on Friday that the full-back has suffered a fracture and, while there is no time frame on his recovery, he is expected to miss his side's remaining six LaLiga matches of 2018-19.

Odriozola has played only 14 league games since moving from Real Sociedad in a reported €35million deal but has been a regular in the side since Zinedine Zidane returned to the club last month.

Real faces Athletic Bilbao, Getafe, Rayo Vallecano, Villarreal, Real Sociedad and Real Betis in its final matches of the season.
