Villarreal CF will be without left-back Rodolfo Arruabarrena for their UEFA Cup group stage opener against S.S. Lazio on 21 October.
The 29-year-old definitely misses the Group E trip to Rome after being ruled out for three to four weeks with a pulled hamstring. Arruabarrena complained of a sore hamstring in training on Tuesday and an MRI scan today revealed the extent of the injury.
The defender will now aim to be fit for the Spanish club's second group game, at home to English side Middlesbrough FC on 25 November.
