Real Betis says striker Ruben Castro will be sidelined for three weeks with a leg injury.

The Spanish club said on Saturday that Castro had hurt a muscle in his right leg.

Castro is tied for fourth-highest scorer in the Spanish league this season with 12 goals through 22 rounds. Barcelona forward Lionel Messi leads the league with 34 goals.

Castro will miss Monday's game against Valladolid, as well as matches against Espanyol and Malaga.

Betis is having an impressive season and challenging for a top-four finish and Champions League berth.
