Guillermo Franco is a serious doubt for Villarreal ahead of their UEFA Champions League tie with Internazionale.
The Yellow Submarines are 2-1 behind after the first leg in Milan and must fancy their chances of reaching the semi-finals thanks to Diego Forlan's precious away goal.
After having to get past Everton to even qualify for the competition's group stages, Villarreal are aiming to cause another upset against the Serie A side.
Franco suffered an injury in the away leg and is still not 100 percent fit, causing him to miss the weekend encounter with Real Zaragoza.
Coach Manuel Pellegrini will give the South American every chance to prove his fitness but there are also concerns over Antonio Guayre.
Javi Venta, Marcos Senna and Juan Roman Riquelme were all rested for the Zaragoza fixture.
