SEVILLE, Spain (AP) Sevilla says midfielder Michael Krohn-Dehli will be sidelined for at least seven months after undergoing surgery on a broken left knee.
The Denmark midfielder suffered the gruesome injury on Thursday during the 2-2 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League semifinals.
He was carried off the pitch in the 73rd minute, less than 15 minutes after going on as a substitute.
The operation took place on Friday once the team had returned to Spain.
Sevilla, the two-time defending Europa League champion, will host the return leg of their semifinal next week.
The 32-year-old Krohn-Dehli joined Sevilla at the start of this season from fellow Spanish club Celta Vigo.
