Villarreal’s lengthy injury list looks set to increase with Carlos Bacca set to be sidelined for a number of weeks, according to reports.
The Colombian had to come off injured in the 35th minute of Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at Leganes due to an apparent muscle injury in his left league.
The former Sevilla and Milan striker has formed a promising attacking partnership with Cedric Bakambu with Bacca netting seven goals this campaign.
The Yellow Submarine are sixth in La Liga but trail 5th-placed Sevilla by seven points following Sunday’s defeat at Butarque.
