Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín will not take part in the Spanish Super Cup later on this week.

The former River Plate star suffered a muscle strain in his calf and will be out for about a month.

Even though he will be missed, Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster will not have him in mind as both Javier Saviola and Ruud Van Nistlerooy will get the nod over “Pipita” when they take the field against Sevilla.
