Roque Junior will miss Bayer 04 Leverkusen's match at FC Dynamo Kyiv in the UEFA Champions League next week because of a groin injury.
Injured against Bremen
The Brazilian international defender, who has impressed since joining Leverkusen from AC Milan in the summer, picked up the injury in the 3-2 German Cup defeat against Werder Bremen on Wednesday. "We knew he had a problem at half-time, but he wanted to stay on the field and help the team," said coach Klaus Augenthaler.
According to Augenthaler, Roque Junior will be out for the next two or three games meaning that he will not make Tuesday's trip to Group B rivals Dynamo as well as tomorrow's Bundesliga visit to VfB Stuttgart.
