Anji lose Traoré to shoulder injury

FC Anji Makhachkala will be without Lacina Traoré for their UEFA Europa League matchday two encounter with Tottenham Hotspur FC after the striker suffered a shoulder injury.

Lacina Traoré has been ruled out for three weeks and will miss FC Anji Makhachkala's UEFA Europa League Group K match against Tottenham Hotspur FC on 3 October.

The 23-year-old Ivorian striker, who registered 12 times in 24 Russian Premier League appearances last term, sustained a shoulder injury during his team's goalless draw at FC Sheriff on Thursday.

Moldova defender Alexandru Epureanu, currently on loan from FC Dinamo Moskva, is also expected to miss the matchday two fixture at home to Tottenham – top of the section after beating Tromsø IL 3-0 – due to a knee problem.
