Dos Santos out two weeks for Villarreal
Villarreal, Spain (SportsNetwork.com) - Villarreal forward Giovani dos Santos will spend the next two weeks on the sidelines after he sustained a thigh injury in Monday's 1-0 win over Elche.
The Mexico international was withdrawn shortly before halftime in Monday's match because of the injury, which was confirmed to be a grade one thigh strain on Wednesday.
Villarreal has now revealed that he will miss Sunday's match with Atletico Madrid, and could also be out for Mexico's crucial World Cup qualifying two- legged playoff against New Zealand, which begins on Nov. 13.
Dos Santos leads Villarreal with six goals in 12 La Liga matches this season.
