Barca's Aguero out for at least 3 months as club investigates possible heart complaint******
MADRID, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- FC Barcelona confirmed on Monday that striker Sergio Aguero will be out of action for at least three months as they try to determine the cause of the irregular heartbeat which saw him forced out of Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Alaves.。
Aguero suffered a dizzy spell during the game and had to lie on the pitch holding his chest as medical staff gave him treatment before leaving the pitch.。
The striker was taken to hospital, where he spent Saturday and Sunday nights.。
"The first team player Sergio Aguero has been subjected to a diagnostic and therapeutic process by Dr.Josep Brugada. He is unavailable for selection and during the next three months the effectiveness of treatment will be evaluated in order to determine his recovery process," reported the FC Barcelona website.。
The news is a huge blow to the former Atletico Madrid, who joined Barca on a free transfer from Manchester City during the summer and had recently made his first-team debut after missing the first 10 weeks of the campaign with a knee injury.。
He has so far managed just 150 minutes of first-team action, scoring his first goal in Barca's 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid on October 24th.。
The world of football has become especially careful of possible cardiac problems, which was highlighted by the cardiac arrest suffered by Denmark international midfielder Christian Ericksen during this summer's European Championships. Enditem。
La Liga: Real Sociedad top standings, Atletico held by Levante******
MADRID, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Second half goals from Alexander Isak and Aritz Elustondo gave Real Sociedad a 2-0 win away to Celta Vigo on Thursday night, which kept them three points clear of Real Madrid, Sevilla and Real Betis at the top of La Liga.
Isak opened the scoring at a rainy Balaidos stadium on 54 minutes from close range after Adnan Januzaj's shot was blocked.
Celta forward Brais Mendez saw a goal ruled out for offside in an entertaining game, before Aritz Elustondo doubled Real Sociedad's lead when he deflected Mikel Merino's header into the Celta goal.
Two penalties from Levante midfielder Enis Bardhi twice pegged back Atletico Madrid in a 2-2 draw in the Ciudad de Valencia Stadium.
Antoine Griezmann popped up at the far post to put Atletico ahead in the 12th minute, before Bardhi's first penalty in the 37th minute after a clumsy challenge from Luis Suarez on Ruben Vezo.
Atletico substitute Matheus Cunha thought he had won the game with his 74th-minute strike shortly after coming on for Griezmann, but the Brazilian was then penalized for handball with four minutes left and again Bardhi kept his cool to slot the ball past Jan Oblak.
Jorge Molina's 97th-minute header saved a point for Granada and denied Getafe their first win of the season as the two teams drew 1-1 in Los Carmines with a result that leaves nobody happy.
Enes Unal put Getafe ahead in the 37th minute and Granada then controlled most of the ball and saw how Luis Suarez hit a penalty high over the bar in the 78th minute.
Molina hit the Getafe post with a header in injury-time, but the game looked to have escaped them before the veteran striker flicked home a corner with the seven minutes of injury-time completed.
On Wednesday night, Real Madrid were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Osasuna, Sevilla drew 1-1 in Mallorca and Betis thrashed Valencia 4-1. FC Barcelona lost 1-0 to Rayo Vallecano, which led to coach Ronald Koeman being sacked in the early hours of Thursday morning, with B-team coach Sergi Barjuan named as caretaker boss later in the day.
