Rodriguez ruled out for Porto game

Central defender Julien Rodriguez will be out for two weeks after pulling a thigh muscle in Olympique de Marseille's 1-0 win against RC Lens on Sunday.

Central defender Julien Rodriguez will be out for two weeks after pulling a thigh muscle in Olympique de Marseille's 1-0 win against RC Lens on Sunday.

'Pulled muscle'
The 29-year-old left the pitch after just 24 minutes of the game at the Vélodrome Stadium and was replaced by Jacques Faty. "It's a pulled muscle," he said. "I'm expected to be out for two weeks." Rodriguez joins goalkeeper Cédric Carrasso and playmaker Samir Nasri on the injury list for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League game at home against FC Porto and is rated doubtful for the return fixture in Portugal on Tuesday 6 November.
