Smolov was injured in the match of the 12th round of the championship of Russia against the Tula Arsenal (2:1) on Sunday. The player has stepped into the starting lineup “red-green” and was noted to assist on Eder 10 minutes, but 10 minutes later was replaced by Aleksey Miranchuk. Due to injury Smolov could not help the Russian team in the qualifying match of the 2020 European championship against Scotland and Cyprus.
“I think that three weeks he will miss, maybe a little more. Fedor is a muscular injury,” – said Kiknadze on the phone.
