Granada’s Inigo Lopez is a minor doubt for Saturday’s visit of Real Madrid after sustaining a muscle injury during training.
Fellow defender Diego Mainz is also struggling with a similar problem, while Roberto, Pape Diakhate, Fran Rico and Hassan Yebda are all out.
With the league title already in the bag, Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is likely to give his fringe players some match experience, and there could be long-awaited recalls to the starting lineup for Nuri Sahin, Raphael Varane and Raul Albiol.
Fabio Coentrao and Mesut Ozil are both suspended, but Angel Di Maria returns from a one-match ban.
