FC Internazionale Milano goalkeeper Júlio César will miss at least one UEFA Champions League fixture after straining his left thigh during the 1-1 Serie A draw at Atalanta BC on Wednesday.
Inter have confirmed that the 32-year-old Brazilian international "sustained a second degree strain in his left thigh" but did not put a time frame on his recovery. Reports suggest this could be between three and four weeks, although he is certainly out of Wednesday's Group B visit of LOSC Lille Métropole.
Luca Castellazzi, who saved a penalty after replacing Júlio César at half-time in Bergamo, is expected to deputise at San Siro. The 36-year-old's three previous UEFA Champions League appearances all came in last season's group stage.
