Villarreal are sitting in sixth spot in the La Liga standings, with little hope of making it to the Champions League and barely holding on to a Europa League qualifying spot as well. The stretch run is going to be crucial to those hopes, but they also took a major blow this weekend.

WARNING: This isn’t for the weak of stomach and is simply one of the most gruesome injuries we’ve seen on the pitch.
