MADRID, Spain -- Real Madrid goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek fractured his jaw and will be sidelined four to six weeks, the Spanish club announced Thursday.

Dudek, Real's No. 2 goalie, was injured in Wednesday's 4-0 win over Auxerre in the Champions League group stage. He suffered the injury just before halftime after colliding with Auxerre's Roy Contout.

The 37-year-old Polish international will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days, when a diagnosis of how long he will be sidelined will be made.

Real Madrid won Group G by posting five wins and a tie. The knockout draw will be held Dec. 17. Real Madrid will play Arsenal, FC Copenhagen, Inter Milan, Lyon, Marseille or Roma in the round of 16.
