Nose blow sidelines Aguilera

Club Atlético de Madrid captain Carlos Aguilera faces a fortnight out after breaking his nose.
Club Atlético de Madrid captain Carlos Aguilera faces a spell on the sidelines after breaking his nose in Sunday evening's 1-1 draw with Sevilla FC.
 
Two-week absence
Aguilera collided with Pablo Alfaro just after the half-hour mark and the Sevilla player's elbow caught the 33-year-old defender in the face. Tests in hospital confirmed Aguilera had broken his nose and would be absent for at least two weeks.
