Villarreal have suffered a blow with the news striker Jose Mari is set to miss up to a month through injury.
A good night for Villarreal which saw the El Madrigal outfit defeat high-flying Osasuna 2-1 on Sunday was soured by a knee injury to Jose Mari.
The initial prognosis suggests the player will sit out the next four weeks, although coach Manuel Pellegrini is awaiting confirmation from further tests on Monday.
The Liga side are not optimistic of a speedy recovery, however, and Jose Mari is now a major doubt for the UEFA Champions League test against Rangers at Ibrox on February 22.
