Real Betis have suffered a major blow with the news that Paolo Castellini is set to be out of action for six months.

The left back has torn ligaments in his right knee after picking up an injury in training on Wednesday.

It means that Castellini will miss the rest of the campaign for Betis.

Castellini's injury leaves Betis short of options in defence as Luis Fernandez is the only available cover for the full back slot.

Betis could now be forced to bring in a new defender when the transfer window reopens in January, with Deportivo La Coruna's Hector already linked with a move to the Seville-based outfit.
