Levante loses Juanlu to broken leg

Levante forward Juanlu sustained a broken leg Wednesday in the Copa del Rey and will be sidelined for an extended spell, leaving the La Liga club without its top scorer this season.

Juanlu, 32, leads Levante with six goals in league games this season, helping the club to fourth in the standings. He was injured in the second match of the Copa del Rey series against Deportivo, a 4-1 win that sealed an aggregate win.

He will undergo surgery soon and could be sidelined four to five months, which could sideline him for the rest of the La Liga season.
