Zenit's Hulk unavailable for Anderlecht

Brazilian forward Hulk will not take part in FC Zenit St Petersburg's Group C game away against RSC Anderlecht on Tuesday after being laid low for two weeks with a hamstring complaint.

Brazilian forward Hulk will miss FC Zenit St Petersburg's Group C trip to face RSC Anderlecht on Tuesday after being sidelined for two weeks with a hamstring injury.

The former FC Porto striker picked up the problem during his side's 2-1 defeat of FC Rostov on Friday and had to be replaced by Vladimir Bystrov after 41 minutes. Medical tests later revealed the extent of the injury, which will rule the 26-year-old out of Zenit's journey to Belgium. The Russian club currently sit third in their section, one point behind second-placed AC Milan and two ahead of Anderlecht.
