Injured duo add to Braga concerns

SC Braga will be missing four players when they face KKS Lech Poznań in Poland, with captain Vandinho and defender Paulão the latest sidelined for the Round of 32 first leg.

Captain Vandinho and defender Paulão are the latest players to be ruled out of SC Braga's UEFA Europa League fixture away to KKS Lech Poznań on Thursday.

Vandinho and fellow Brazilian Paulão were taken off with respective thigh and groin injuries during Sunday's 2-0 home defeat by Liga leaders FC Porto and will not travel to Poland for Thursday's first leg of the round of 32 tie.

Coach Domingos Paciência is also without left-back Elderson and forward Paulo César, both of whom are struggling with thigh problems.
