AS Monaco FC captain Gaël Givet is a serious doubt for next week's match against FC Basel 1893 when the principality team's UEFA Cup fate will be decided.

'I had to go off'
The 24-year-old French international defender sustained a groin injury during Wednesday night's Round of 32 tie in Switzerland, and had to watch the last 70 minutes from the sidelines as Monaco fell to a 1-0 first-leg defeat. "I felt a pain and had to go off," Givet said. His fitness and availability for the return at Stade Louis II on 23 February are now major question marks.
