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!
