Mainz misery for Rayo

Rayo Vallecano may have to do without midfield player Diego Mainz for the next two months.
Rayo Vallecano may have to do without midfield player Diego Mainz for the next two months of their fight against relegation from Spain's Primera División.

Mixed results
Rayo, the league's second-bottom club, learned today that the 20-year-old faces up to eight weeks on the sidelines after keyhole surgery on a knee injury. The good news for the Madrid-based team is that the operation was a success.

Nothing serious
"The arthroscopy went well," said Rayo club doctor Carlos Beceiro. "He had a small ligament tear, from which he will make a good recovery, and the operation also revealed damaged to the meniscus which is not too serious." Mainz has made 16 league appearances this term.
