April 15, 2006

MADRID, April 15 (Reuters) - Villarreal defenders Gonzalo Rodriguez and Juan Manuel Pena are doubtful for Wednesday's Champions League semi-final, first leg at Arsenal.

Argentine international Rodriguez suffered a blow to his ankle and had to leave the pitch after 20 minutes of Villarreal's 1-0 defeat at Barcelona on Friday, while fellow centre-back Pena twisted his ankle late on in the game.

The club said that the two players were serious doubts for the game at Highbury.
