Brazilian defender Douglas has suffered a thigh strain in training on Sunday and will be out of action for three to four weeks, meaning he will sit out both cup matches against Atlético Madrid and the nest two Liga matches as well.

Douglas was not included in the squad that faced Deportivo and instead trained at the Ciutat Esportiva with the other dropped players. After joining the club in the summer, he has played four official matches, against Málaga in the league, Huesca in the cup (hom and away) and against Elche in the cup.
