Abdoulay Konko faces a race against time to be fit for Sevilla FC's UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg at PFC CSKA Moskva after the midfielder tore adductor muscles on Liga duty.

Heavy loss
The 25-year-old suffered the injury during Saturday's 4-0 defeat by FC Barcelona – Los Rojiblancos' fourth in succession – and subsequent tests have revealed that the French-born player will be sidelined for at least four weeks. Konko has scored twice in 18 Liga and UEFA Champions League appearances this term. Sevilla will take on CSKA at the Luzhniki Stadium on 24 February with the return in southern Spain scheduled for 16 March.
