Benfica defender Marcos Nelson is set to miss his side's UEFA Champions League clash with Celtic through injury.

Nelson limped off after 42 minutes of his side's 1-0 Group D defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk last week.


Scans have revealed the defender has ruptured a muscle in his right-leg ruling him out for up to a month.

Benfica coach Jose Camacho is likely to turn to either Luis Filipe or Maxi Pereira for the clash with Gordon Strachan's side on 24th October.
