Tests
The 32-year-old striker, who returned to Portuguese football on loan from FC Dinamo Moskva this summer, will undergo tests in the coming days to assess the extent of the injury but faces a race against time to be fit for the Lisbon side's Group F opener against Manchester United FC a week on Wednesday. Paulo Bento's side will also face AS Roma and FC Dynamo Kyiv in Group F action.
