Valencia will be without Roberto Soldado for their Copa del Rey encounter against Real Madrid.

Roberto Soldado will play no part in Valencia's Copa del Rey tie against Real Madrid on Wednesday night because of a thigh injury.

The Spanish international picked up the complaint during his side's 5-0 La Liga loss to Jose Mourinho's team at the weekend.

As a result, he has been ruled out for Valencia's third match against the champions in eight days, while a scan will determine how much more time he is due to spend on the sidelines.

Los Ches go into the match trailing 2-0 from the first leg in Madrid.
