Spartak Moscow midfielder Romulo will miss most of the season after injuring his knee in Sunday's Russian Premier League match.

The 22-year-old Brazil international, who joined Spartak on a four-year contract from Vasco da Gama in June, tore cruciate ligaments in his knee in a 3-1 win at Rostov.

The defensive midfielder will have surgery in Germany, the Moscow club said on their website.

Spartak, who host Scottish champions Celtic in the Champions League Group G match next week, have several key players out with injuries, including captain Sergei Parshivlyuk and leading striker Welliton.
