De Melo to miss crucial Trabzonspor match

Lille forward Tulio De Melo will miss his team's final match in Champions League Group B play next week after suffering a hamstring injury over the weekend.

The Brazilian sustained the problem in his team's 2-0 win over Brest on Saturday as he had to be replaced after 26 minutes.

The club has since confirmed that De Melo will be out for the next four to six weeks, meaning he will miss next Wednesday's home match with Trabzonspor in the Champions League, a game that can see Lille secure a place in the knockout round with a win.

De Melo has also battled knee problems so far this season which have kept him to just four Ligue 1 appearances for the club so far this term.
