Valencia have been lifted after Vicente did not suffer a serious ankle injury.
Valencia have been given a boost after learning Vicente has not suffered a serious ankle injury.
The winger hurt his ankle during the first half of Valencia's Primera Liga game with Celta Vigo on Sunday.
The Che were initially fearful that Vicente had suffered a recurrence of the ankle injury he picked up in 2004, which sidelined him for a lengthy spell.
But early indications suggest the Spain international will need no longer than a month out of the Valencia team.
Vicente will miss Wednesday's UEFA Champions League tie with Shakhtar Donetsk, but expects to be back well within the four-week timeframe.
"I'm fine," said Vicente.
"In the end it's nothing serious and the only concern was that this is the same ankle I had surgery on.
"It's swollen and it hurts, but if all goes well I should be fit next week."
