Real Madrid will be without Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Luke Modric and Marcelo for Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atletico.

The defending champions host neighbours Atletico following last week's goalless draw at the Vicente Calderon knowing that conceding a goal on Wednesday will make their task even more difficult because of the away goals rule.

Even more concerning for Madrid, they have failed to beat Atletico for seven consecutive games and this is something which must change for them to progress unless they win a penalty shootout.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has a calf injury and will miss this week's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atletico Madrid, the club said on Monday.

Bale limped off early in Real's 3-1 victory over Malaga in La Liga on Saturday and is expected to be out of action for up to three weeks.

"He has been diagnosed with an injury to the calf muscle of the left leg," Real said in a statement on their website.

Midfielder Luka Modric is also injured and striker Karim Benzema is a fitness doubt for the Atletico game on Wednesday with the tie level at 0-0 from the first leg.

Modric, who only came back from a four-month injury lay-off in March, was substituted in the second half of Real's 3-1 home win over Malaga on Saturday after damaging his knee in a challenge with visiting midfielder Recio.

The Croatia international underwent tests on Sunday morning and, while Madrid have not given any estimate on how long Modric might be out for, reports in Spain suggest he could be sidelined for up to six weeks.

A club statement read:

Following tests carried out on Luka Modric at the La Moraleja Sanitas Hospital by Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been found to have a strain to the medial collateral ligament of his right knee. His situation will be monitored.
