Valencia's Marchena out for the rest of the year

MADRID, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Valencia's Spanish international defender Carlos Marchena will miss his side's remaining Champions League group games after tearing the cruciate ligament in his left knee in a Primera Liga match at the weekend.

Valencia said that tests carried out on Monday revealed that the 27-year-old would be out of action for around three and a half months.

The central defender, who has been playing in midfield to cover for the injured David Albelda and Ruben Baraja in recent games, was forced off the pitch in the 19th minute of his side's 2-0 win over Getafe on Sunday.

Striker David Villa also picked up a minor muscle strain, while left back Asier del Horno has yet to play for the club since moving from Chelsea in the close season.

Valencia, who are one of three remaining teams who have yet to drop a point, are away at Barcelona in their next league match on Sunday.

They beat Olympiakos 4-2 away in their opening Champions League match in Group D where they will also meet Shakhtar Donetsk and AS Roma.
