Filipe Luis, the Club Atlético de Madrid defender, is suffering from a "grade II fibre tear in the adductor longus in his right thigh", according to a statement on the Liga BBVA club's official website after the 28 year old underwent a scan on Thursday.

The Brazilian player left the pitch after 13 minutes of the Copa del Rey quarter-final second-leg match against Athletic Club, in which his team won 1-2 to reach the next round. Although the Madrid club has given no official estimated recovery time, it looks like the full-back is set to miss the cup semi-final matches against Real Madrid CF and the coming weeks in the Liga BBVA.

So far, Filipe Luis has played 19 Liga BBVA matches with Atlético, all of them as a starter, with a total of 1,709 minutes on the pitch.
