Villarreal forward Giovani dos Santos will be sidelined for two weeks after suffering a thigh injury.

The Mexico international suffered the injury during Monday night's 1-0 win over Elche and was withdrawn just before half-time.

Villarreal have now confirmed that tests have shown he suffered a grade one thigh strain and will miss Sunday's match against Atletico Madrid.

Former Tottenham striker Dos Santos is also likely to miss Mexico's FIFA World Cup™ qualifying play-off double-header against New Zealand later this month.
