Benfica coach Jorge Jesus has conceded there is ‘no chance’ of Oscar Cardozo featuring in his side’s upcoming clash against Barcelona.
The towering forward featured as a substitute in Benfica’s Champions League opener, a goalless draw away to Celtic.
But his coach has dismissed any possibility of the Paraguayan playing against the Catalan giants on Tuesday.
“I think Cardozo has no chance to recover for the match against Barcelona,” Jesus revealed.
“We’ll have to run a lot. Barcelona will wear us down with their ball movement.”
Jesus will likely turn to Rodrigo Lima after the Brazilian bagged a decisive double in his side’s 2-1 victory over Pacos de Ferreira recently.
