Maxime Gonalons has suffered a leg fracture in training and will now be assessed by Sevilla’s club doctors.
The 29-year-old joined the Andalusian club on loan this summer from Italian side AS Roma and has enjoyed good form thus far.
However, after training on Thursday morning, the Frenchman has now suffered a setback and medical tests will uncover the true extent of the problem.
Prior to his arrival at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Gonalons spent time with Lyon in France and Roma in the Serie A.
Roque Mesa escapes suspension after Seville derby dismissal
The former Swansea City man was seen as the victim for Sevilla as they lost to Betis and the midfielder was sent off.
Mesa was involved in constant arguments during the derby last weekend and eventually saw red in the 65th minute after an altercation with Pau Lopez.
The midfielder was seen to obstruct Lopez from playing the ball out fast and starting a Betis counter attack. The keeper then jumped on top of Mesa and appeared to elbow him, but instead of booking the keeper – the referee chose to send of the former Las Palmas man.
The competition committee have now retracted the second yellow card which saw him dismissed.
VAR has since come up with the verdict that Mesa did not obstruct play with force and he will now be available to play against Getafe after the international break.
Sevilla were then reduced to ten men and lost the derby 1-0 thanks to a goal from veteran winger Joaquin.
