MERCADO SUFFERS FRACTURE IN THE ULNA OF HIS RIGHT ARM

The Argentine spent the night in hospital following El Gran Derbi and will undergo surgery this Monday

Bad news went beyond a loss in the Benito Villamarín last night. To add to the pain of a 1-0 loss on rival soil, Sevilla also suffered a blow in the injury department. Gabriel Mercado was forced off in clear pain in the dying minutes of the match, having suffered a nasty blow in Sevilla's box.

Early medical tests have revealed that Mercado suffered a fracture in the ulna of his right arm, forcing him to spend the night in hospital - awaiting surgery this Monday. Once surgery is completed, a recovery period will be estimated. Fuerza Gaby!
