Monaco captain Radamel Falcao will miss the next three Ligue 1 games after suffering a thigh injury in the weekend win over Lyon, the soccer club said on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old striker has scored 17 goals in 20 league games this season, behind Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani on 21 and Neymar on 18. Falcao has been plagued by injury in the past, but in recent months has been consistently fit.
AS Monaco said that their star player will be back in two or three weeks and will miss the games against Anger, Dijon and Toulouse at the very least.
