Sevilla suffer quadruple injury blow

Europa League holders Sevilla will be deprived of the services of Beto, Stephane Mbia, Iago Aspas and Coke for the coming weeks, the club confirmed on Tuesday.

Portuguese international goalkeeper Beto will not require surgery on a shoulder injury he suffered when Karim Benzema crashed into him during his side's 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid last week.

However, he will still be sidelined for eight weeks meaning he will miss Sevilla's return to Europa League action against Borussia Monchengladbach later this month, as well as La Liga games against Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.

Mbia and Coke suffered hamstring injuries in another 2-1 reverse at Getafe on Sunday and will be out for up to three weeks and a month respectively.

Meanwhile, on-loan Liverpool striker Aspas has a groin problem that will also keep him out for up to four weeks.
