               === De Melo to miss crucial Trabzonspor match ===
 
 Lille,  France  (Sports Network) -  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.
