Spartak Moscow goalkeeper Andriy Dykan will be out of action for at least a month after suffering a shoulder injury, the club said Sunday.

The injury puts the Ukraine international out of Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Celtic and Spartak's home game against Benfica on September 23, and at least three Russian league fixtures.

The 35-year-old suffered the injury in Spartak’s 3-1 win away at Amkar Perm and was replaced at half-time by reserve stopper Sergei Pesyakov.
