Regueiro the latest victim of Valencia's injury jinx

MADRID, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Uruguayan forward Mario Regueiro is the latest player to join Valencia's burgeoning injury list after picking up a shoulder strain that will keep him out for abound three weeks, the Primera Liga club said on Thursday.

Regueiro fell awkwardly during their 2-0 King's Cup win over third division Portuense on Wednesday.

He is set to miss Valencia's Champions League match at home to Olympiakos on Nov. 22, when Quique Sanchez Flores's side will be trying to secure first place in Group D.

Valencia have been plagued by injury problems this season.

Italian defender Emiliano Moretti suffered a knee ligament injury on Sunday that will keep him out for about three months, and midfielder Jaime Gavilan is sidelined for up to eight months after tearing the cruciate ligament in his right knee last week.

Midfielders David Albelda, Vicente and Ruben Baraja are also injured, as are defenders Asier del Horno and Carlos Marchena.

Baraja and Vicente are close to making recoveries.

Valencia, fifth in the Primera Liga four points behind leaders Sevilla, host struggling Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
