Schalke look set to be without Lincoln for Thursday's Uefa Cup clash with Palermo.Schalke look set to be without midfield playmaker Lincoln for Thursday's Uefa Cup clash with Palermo.
The Brazilian star missed Saturday's away win at Hannover with a knee injury and is pessimistic about being ready for the trip to Sicily.
"I haven't got a good feeling about it," Lincoln said. "I can't make any sideways movements at all."
The 27-year-old believes his chances of making the squad are only 50/50 and should he fail to recover, Mimoun Azaouagh will make his European debut.
The former Mainz star made his first Bundesliga appearance for Schalke at Hannover after missing the last 16 months with injury.
