Georgian striker Shota Arveladze faces a race to be fit for Levante UD's opening match of the season at RCD Mallorca on 26 August after suffering a knee cartilage problem during training.

The 34-year-old tore his meniscus at the Spanish club’s pre-season base in Soria and will travel to Amsterdam for surgery tomorrow after undergoing extensive tests with Dr José Nebot.
