Vrsaljko avoids knee surgery
Atletico Madrid right back Sime Vrsaljko will not need surgery on a knee injury sustained on Sunday, although he is expected to be out for around four weeks. Tests revealed a partial tear to his posterior cruciate ligament and a medial collateral ligament sprain. The 25-year-old Croatia internetional will miss Atletico's league games with Malaga, Real Sociedad, Real Madrid and Osasuna and their Champions League quarter-final tie with Leicester City.

Vrsaljko suffers serious knee injury
Atletico Madrid right-back Sime Vrsaljko is likely to face a long spell on the sidelines after sustaining a serious knee injury in their 3-1 home win over Sevilla on Sunday. With just a minute on the clock, the defender went into a tackle and immediately went down holding his knee, and was substituted by Juanfran. An MRI scan after the game showed that Vrsaljko suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his left knee, with more tests required to determine how bad the damage is.
Valencia without Mina, Nani against Barca
Valencia will be without attacking duo Santi Mina and Nani for Sunday's trip to Barcelona. Mina joined Nani on the sidelines on Wednesday after tests confirmed he was suffering from a calf problem. Los Che have confirmed, meanwhile, that Nani, who was ruled out on Tuesday, will "visit a medical specialist to assess his recent injuries to try and reappear as soon as possible."
Striker Rodrigo Moreno is also missing for Valencia, meaning on loan Barca forward Munir El Haddadi is once again likely to start against his former club.

Remiro taken to hospital
Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Alex Remiro has been taken to hospital after being hit on the head by a ball. The 21-year-old, who is yet to make his debut for the La Liga side, was struck during Wednesday's training session. Remiro, who recently returned from a loan spell with second-tier side Levante, is Athletic's third-choice keeper.
Nani ruled out of Barcelona match
Valencia have confirmed that Nani will miss Sunday's LaLiga meeting with Barcelona. The Portugal international has been sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury during the 2-1 victory over Real Madrid on February 22. It was hoped that Nani would be available to face Luis Enrique's side, but the former Manchester United winger has suffered a setback.
"During the process of his recovery from an injury to his left thigh, Nani has suffered an overload in his right adductors, which rules him out of being available for the next match," the club said in a statement.
Neymar misses Barca trip to Deportivo
Barcelona will be without Neymar against Deportivo la Coruna on Sunday. The Brazilian missed training on Saturday due to a left abductor strain and hasn't been included in Luis Enrique's 18-man squad. Midfielder Rafinha also misses out for Barca due to gastroenteritis. Defenders Jeremy Mathieu and Aleix Vidal (both ankle) continue to remain absent with their respective fitness issues.

Morata passed fit, Pepe ruled out
Alvaro Morata has been named in Real Madrid's 19-man squad for Sunday's La Liga clash against Real Betis. Morata suffered a blow to his left leg during Friday's training session, prompting fears he may miss out on Sunday.
Manager Zinedine Zidane will have just two centre-halves at his disposal. Raphael Varane misses out having only just light training on Friday after his recent injury. Pepe has returned to training on Friday, after he missed Thursday's workout, but he will not be part of Sunday's squad.
Fabio Coentrao is also absent having failed to recover from a knock. Gareth Bale is suspended for Sunday's match, serving the second game of his two-match ban for the red card shown against Las Palmas.

Gabi, Gameiro, Torres out
Atletico Madrid strikers Kevin Gameiro and Fernando Torres, as well as midfielder Gabi Fernandez, are unavailable for Saturday's La Liga game at Granada. Gameiro has been struck by a stomach muscle problem which rules him out of the trip south, while club captain Gabi underwent a hand operation this week, and Torres remains sidelined following his concussion against Deportivo La Coruna on March 2.

Torres set to return to training
Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres could return to training on Tuesday for the first time since suffering a head injury in his team's 1-1 draw with Deportivo La Coruna. Reports in Spain on Monday night suggested Torres, who spent a night in hospital after suffering a head injury in a heavy fall late in the game on Thursday, could train apart from team-mates with the team in La Liga action against Granada on Saturday.

Gabi set for hand surgery
Atletico Madrid captain Gabi will undergo surgery after suffering a fractured hand. The 33-year-old midfielder picked up the injury in a domestic accident but played the full 90 minutes of Los Rojiblancos' 3-0 win over Valencia on Sunday with his hand strapped up. Gabi has been a near ever-present so far this season, playing in 24 of Atletico's 26 LaLiga matches, but his participating for the next few weeks is now in doubt.
Gomes misses training due to illness
Andre Gomes is a doubt for the Barcelona clash with Celta Vigo after the Portugal international missed the Friday's training sessions due to illness. Jeremy Mathieu and long-term casualty Aleix Vidal also remain on the sidelines but manager Luis Enrique is expected to have the most of his key players available.
"The FC Barcelona first team went through their final training session on Friday morning before Saturday's league match against Celta Vigo. Luis Enrique was without Andre Gomes due to general discomfort and vomiting," the club confirmed. "The Portuguese midfielder, after a doctor's assessment, returned home."

Ronaldo to miss Eibar trip
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is set to be without three of his main forwards for Saturday's trip to Eibar after Cristiano Ronaldo missed training on Friday with an ankle knock, joining the suspended Gareth Bale and Alvaro Morata on the sidelines. Ronaldo has scored four goals in his team's last three league games, including a brace in Wednesday's 3-3 come-from-behind draw with Las Palmas. Bale has been handed a two-match ban after he was shown his first red card in La Liga, the second in his career, against Las Palmas.
