Genk without Nadson for a month

KRC Genk defender Nadson will be unavailable for his team's trip to Group E leaders Chelsea FC after suffering an ankle injury during Wednesday's 2-0 defeat at Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

KRC Genk defender Nadson will miss UEFA Champions League matchday three after suffering an ankle injury on Wednesday.

Nadson got his right foot stuck in the turf during the 2-0 defeat at Bayer 04 Leverkusen and was forced off with 21 minutes remaining. Fears that he may have torn ankle ligaments were allayed thanks to a scan, though the 26-year-old will still be out of action for a month.

Nadson is therefore certain to sit out the trip to Group E leaders Chelsea FC on 19 October and could be struggling to be available in time for the home return fixture on matchday four.
