Lucas Bernardi will miss Monaco's UEFA Champions League game with Liverpool.Monaco midfielder Lucas Bernardi will miss the club's opening UEFA Champions League fixture against Liverpool.
Bernardi picked up a knee injury in midweek, after scoring in the club's 6-0 qualifying victory over Gorica.
The Argentine ace has meniscus trouble in his knee and will be sidelined for four weeks, ruling him out of the trip to Anfield on September 15.
He is due to return to his homeland for surgery over the weekend but he must also be doubtful for the second Champions League clash against Deportivo La Coruna on September 28.
In addition to Bernardi, Monaco coach Didier Deschamps may also be without Joseph Oshadogan for the visit to Merseyside.
Oshadogan has suffered a similar injury to his team-mate and requires a minor operation to fix the complaint.
