Serbian forward Luka Jovic was taken off after 30 minutes after colliding with Atletico shot-stopper Jan Oblak.

Jovic now joins Brahim Diaz, Marco Asensio and fellow new signing Ferland Mendy on the sidelines.

Asensio is expected to miss a large portion of the 2019/2020 season while Mendy is likely to only miss the start of the campaign.

Los Blancos are yet to confirm the extent of Jovic's injury, but the striker was in some discomfort and received a lot of medical attention following the collision.

Despite the loss and injuries, Zinedine remains optimistic that his side will have a good season.

"We will be motivated. I have no doubt about that. Our season is going to be good. I am convinced," Zidane said, as per Fox Sports Asia.
