Nababkin sidelined for Europa League run-in

Kirill Nababkin could miss PFC CSKA Moskva's final Group F matches after sustaining a facial injury during the defeat of FC Spartak Moskva that secured UEFA Champions League football.

Kirill Nababkin could miss the remainder of PFC CSKA Moskva's UEFA Europa League group matches after sustaining a facial injury.

CSKA won the Moscow derby against FC Spartak Moskva to finish second in the Premier-Liga and secure a place in next season's UEFA Champions League group stage. But the 3-1 victory came at a price for the Army Men, as Nababkin suffered a serious injury to his face in a collision with Spartak's Anton Khodyrev six minutes from time.

Doctors have yet to ascertain the length of Nababkin's absence but the former FC Moskva defender is certain to miss the 2 December encounter with FC Lausanne-Sport and may not return to take on AC Sparta Praha 13 days later. The Group F leaders are already through.
