Osasuna ace limps out

Club Atlético Osasuna have lost influential midfield player Pablo García for a month with a knee injury.
Club Atlético Osasuna face a month without Uruguayan international Pablo García after tests revealed that the midfield player has a knee ligament injury.

Atlético blow
García, 25, sustained the injury in last Saturday's league match against Club Atlético de Madrid, his former employers, and is expected to be out until the new year.

Missing from action
His absence is a blow to Osasuna, who go into Sunday's Basque derby at Athletic Club Bilbao, lying just two points off the relegation places. García will also miss the matches against RCD Espanyol and Real Betis Balompié later this month.
