Milan: Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric could be sidelined for three weeks after suffering a suspected groin strain while playing for Croatia in a 1-1 draw with Italy, national team bosses said.

Modric hobbled off just before the half-hour mark of the Group H qualifier at a packed San Siro on Sunday and was replaced by Inter Milan midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

A team spokesman said Modric "would be out for three weeks" with the injury.

If confirmed, Modric would miss Real Madrid's away trip to Champions League group opponents FC Basel on November 26.
