David Villa will not be able to play in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals against Real Madrid. 'El Guaje' has suffered an elongation of the femoral biceps of his left thigh. The club has not indicated how long the player will be out for, although the norm is around 10 days, meaning his participation in the return leg is also doubtful.
The Spanish forward had to be taken off this Sunday during the Real Sociedad game, just after having scored his team's all-important first goal. Raúl García came on for him.
