Valencia have confirmed that key player Gonzalo Guedes will be on the sidelines for up to four weeks after suffering a broken toe.
Guedes suffered the injury before the Barcelona game but played through the pain against the Catalans.
He is set to undergo surgery on Monday after it was revealed after a medical exam that a toe on his right foot had a stress fracture. This has effectively ensured that the Portuguese international will not feature for the Los Che till the end of the winter break.
This could be a major blow to Marcelino’s side as they look to keep up with Barcelona in the race for the La Liga title.
