Celta Vigo are going through a delicate moment and have another piece of bad news to add - Rafinha Alcantara's recovery is going slower than expected. The player suffered an injury against Real Betis that should take 10 days to recover from, or so said the medics. However it's been 20 and he's still not available for Oscar Garcia.

The player's physical problems an issue for the club, given that he's a key piece of the side. It's not yet known if he will be ready to face Villarreal on Sunday, although most likely not.

Oscar Garcia's arrival is a boost for Rafinha, a coach who knows him well from their time at Barcelona. The team is in crisis, 18th with five consecutive defeats.

Rafinha's arrival gave the fans hope but his injury struggles are a nightmare for him and the club.
