Navarro and Miguel add to Valencia injury list

Valencia CF have been deprived of defenders David Navarro and Miguel for Wednesday's Group C visit of Bursaspor after both players suffered thigh strains at the weekend.

Valencia CF will be without defenders David Navarro and Miguel for their UEFA Champions League Group C game against Bursaspor on Wednesday.

Captain Navarro was forced off 39 minutes into the Spanish team's 1-1 draw at Villarreal CF on Saturday and full-back Miguel followed suit just before the hour. Their absence will come as a blow to coach Unai Emery who was already missing full-back Jérémy Mathieu with a calf problem for the visit of the Turkish champions.

Valencia sit second in Group C, two points above third-placed Rangers FC. Victory against Ertuğrul Sağlam's side will ensure the Liga club of a place in the round of 16 should Rangers fail to beat Manchester United FC at Ibrox.
