CSKA's Schennikov sidelined with thigh injury

PFC CSKA Moskva full-back Georgi Schennikov is a major doubt for the visit of LOSC Lille Métropole on 22 November after picking up a thigh injury on matchday four.

PFC CSKA Moskva look likely to be without full-back Georgi Schennikov for their matchday five meeting with LOSC Lille Métropole.

Schennikov, who returned on 23 October from an ankle injury sustained in June, made his first UEFA Champions League appearance of the season against Trabzonspor AŞ on Wednesday. He was forced off at half-time of the goalless draw, however, and has since been ruled out for at least three weeks with a thigh problem.

Though tests have shown the 20-year-old does not need surgery, he is now uncertain to be available for the visit of Lille to the Russian capital on 22 November. CSKA are second in Group B, level on points with Trabzonspor but four adrift of leaders FC Internazionale Milano.
