Pedro Ríos the latest Getafe star to fall prey to illness

On-form Getafe winger Pedro Ríos is set to miss Thursday's Copa del Rey encounter against Real Betis due to gastroenteritis.

The former Xerez man had to leave the field early during Geta's 3-2 home defeat to Real Madrid on Monday night, being replaced by Juan Ángel Albín shortly after half-time.

Coach Míchel told As after the match that the 29-year-old was in fact ill for most of the week, and that it was touch-and-go as to whether or not he'd take part at all.

Now, it seems, that he's laid low ahead of Thursday's match with the Béticos. Getafe lead 2-1 on aggregate following the first leg in Seville.
