Mallorca striker Bernardo Romeo will be out of action for a month through injury.Mallorca's fight against relegation has received a blow with the news that striker Bernardo Romeo will be out of action for a month.
The Argentine hit-man joined The Islanders on loan from Hamburg until the end of the season during the transfer window in January.
The 28-year-old has torn a thigh muscle and will now be sidelined for at least four weeks.
It is bad news for Mallorca boss Hector Cuper who will also be without Juan Arango for six weeks after he broke his cheekbone in last weekend's defeat to Sevilla.
Romeo looked to have settled in recent weeks and grabbed a vital double in Mallorca's recent 3-2 win over Real Sociedad.
However, the Balearic outfit will have to make do without his services as they look to close the seven-point gap that currently separates them from safety in La Primera.
