Spain midfielder Isco Alarcon has been discharged from hospital after undergoing surgery, Real Madrid have confirmed.
The Spain star experienced stomach pains on Tuesday and was diagnosed with acute appendicitis.
After having surgery, Isco will definitely miss Wednesday’s LaLiga game at Sevilla, with Madrid giving no timescale for his recovery.
And barring a miracle recovery, Isco is almost certain to be unavailable for Saturday’s El Derbi against Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“He begins his recovery process under the supervision of the Sanitas Real Madrid Medical Services,” Madrid said in a brief statement.
Reports have indicated Isco could be out for around a month, ruling him out of Champions League ties against CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen.
