Valencia is set to be without winger Pablo Piatti for the next two months after he broke his arm in training.
Piatti suffered a double fracture in his right arm and was taken to the Centro de Rehabilitacion de Levante, where he was immediately operated on.
A statement on Valencia's website read: "Piatti is going to remain in hospital for the next 48 hours and, save any complications, will be discharged after this period.
"Due to the precaution needed in these cases, the estimated recovery period is between eight and 10 weeks."
