Midfielder Christopher Drazan is likely to miss the remainder of SK Rapid Wien's UEFA Europa League campaign, having been ruled out for "several weeks" after tearing ligaments in his right ankle.

Meteoric rise
The 19-year-old, who has scored once in three Group C games, was capped for the first time by Austria in a FIFA World Cup qualifier against Lithuania on 10 October. Drazan made his first appearance for Rapid last season and now has 31 Bundesliga showings to his name as well as two league goals to add to the one he scored against Hamburger SV in Europe, when his side won 3-0 on Matchday 1.
