Sporting Clube de Portugal will be without the services of Yannick Djaló for four weeks after the forward injured his right thigh during training.
The blow makes the 21-year-old a doubt for the first leg of Sporting's UEFA Cup Round of 32 tie with FC Basel 1893 in mid-February, though he should be fit for the return a week later. "Djaló will undergo treatment and special training in order to overcome this problem," read a club statement. Djaló has made just nine Liga appearances for Paulo Bento's side this season, the last coming on 11 November against SC Braga.
