Valencia's Asier Del Horno is hoping to make his comeback from injury this month.
Valencia's Asier Del Horno is hoping to be involved against Internazionale in their UEFA Champions League clash later this month.
The former Chelsea man is yet to make his debut for The Che following his summer move after he damaged his Achilles tendon.
He is now back in full training and has one eye on the Inter clash, with the first leg taking place in Milan on 21st February.
"Three weeks ago I looked to make the squad for the Inter game," he said.
"But the only certain thing is that I have gone a long time without playing and I believe that I might be deceiving myself if I was to say now that I will be ready to face Inter.
"At this moment I just know that I will play again soon."
While Valencia may yet be boosted by the return of Del Horno, it seems Vicente is now a serious doubt.
The winger picked up a thigh problem against Atletico Madrid and is now set for two weeks on the sidelines - making him a doubt for the Inter game.
Inter are also not without injury worries with the Champions League due to kick back into action.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic took a big knock to his head last week and he will have scans in the coming days to make sure there is no major problem.
