Nordin Amrabat has suffered an injury while on international duty with Morocco.
The 27-year-old came off in the game he scored in and has sustained a suspected muscle tear.
Amrabat is now expected to miss Malaga’s fixtures against Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
The flamboyant winger has three assists and three goals in his last five league games and was named in Marca’s October La Liga Team of the Month.
Amrabat is currently contracted to Galatasaray but has been on loan at Malaga since last season.
Galatasaray board member Abdurrahim Albayrak wants Nordin Amrabat to return to Istanbul after his loan deal with Malaga comes to an end.
The former PSV player has made three assists and scored three goals in nine La Liga appearances this season.
