Godin was substituted in the 49th minute of Wednesday's (AEDT) absorbing 1-1 draw at Barcelona, which sent the Catalans through to the Copa del Rey final 3-2 on aggregate following a second leg that saw three players sent off.

Diego Simeone's side has not lost in six league games ahead of Monday's visit of Celta, but is set to be without its defensive lynchpin for two weeks, according to local reports.

Simeone is now down to just two fit centre-backs with Jose Gimenez also sidelined.

Luis Hernandez – Godin's replacement – is expected to stand trial in a domestic abuse case later this month.
