Sevilla defender Pareja tears knee ligament, out 6 months

SEVILLE, Spain (AP) -- Sevilla says defender Nico Pareja will be sidelined for at least six months after tearing a ligament in his right knee.

The Argentine center back was injured early in Thursday's 2-2 draw at Zenit St. Petersburg that put the titleholders into the Europa League's semifinals.

Sevilla says Pareja will need surgery at a date "still to be determined" and that he will be sidelined "for an estimated six to seven months."

Sevilla is currently fifth in the Spanish league and will play Fiorentina in the Europa League semifinals starting on May 7.
