Osasuna's attacking midfielder Valdo has been sidelined for up to three weeks.Osasuna's attacking midfielder Valdo has been sidelined for up to three weeks with a muscular injury.
The former Real Madrid man picked up the problem in his left leg during training, and medical tests have indicated that he will miss out for 15 to 20 days.
The 24-year-old has been initially ruled out of the upcoming La Liga games against Villarreal, Zaragoza and Mallorca.
Osasuna are far enough away from the relegation zone for his absence to have an overly negative impact though, as they are currently 12 points clear of 18th placed Mallorca and have a game in hand.
However, more seriously, Valdo is also a doubt for the Copa del Rey semi-final against Atletico Madrid, with the star netting the only goal in Osasuna's 1-0 first leg victory.
