CSKA's Cauņa in doubt for Madrid after fracture

Aleksandrs Cauņa is a major doubt for PFC CSKA Moskva's UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg against Real Madrid CF after breaking a bone in his right foot in training.

Midfielder Aleksandrs Cauņa faces a race against time to be fit for PFC CSKA Moskva's UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg against Real Madrid CF after suffering a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot.

The Latvian international, who has made 15 Russian Premier-Liga appearances this term and scored once in five UEFA Champions League Group B matches, suffered the injury at CSKA's warm-weather training camp in Spain on Monday. The 23-year-old will have advanced scans in Munich to decide if surgery is needed and to determine the length of time he will be absent.

The former Skonto FC player may struggle to be available, however, for when CSKA take on Real Madrid in their round of 16 first leg at the Stadion Luzhniki on 21 February, with the return game to follow at the Santiago Bernabéu on 14 March.
