Belarus striker Vitali Rodionov is expected to miss out team’s Euro 2016 qualifiers vs Ukraine and Luxembourg through injury.
The 31-year-old suffered a suspected knee injury playing for BATE Borisov in the Champions League play-off against Partizan Belgrade, and was forced to leave the pitch after mere 15 minutes.
And rather than travelling back to Belarus with his club, Rodionov flew straight to Munich to have his knee checked out by a specialist.
However, the first signs are not positive and there is a chance the experienced forward is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
This means that he is definitely out of Belarus’ Euro 2016 qualifier vs Ukraine taking place in Lviv, where home win is available at 1.36 (4/11).
Oddly enough, Vitali Rodionov (46/10) has been out in the cold when the national team is concerned, despite producing some impressive showings for BATE Borisov in domestic championship and the Champions League.
The centre forward last featured for Belarus over a year ago, but there were signs that he might return to the international fold.
