The full-back faces a spell out of action with an ankle injury.
There was bad news for Paulo Otavio and VfL Wolfsburg on Monday, as the full-back was diagnosed with a serious injury to his right ankle, sustained in the friendly against Atletico Madrid. The Brazilian was substituted off the pitch after just 11 minutes on Saturday following a challenge with Rodrigo Riquelme.
Extensive examinations on Monday confirmed that Otavio will not require surgery, but that he will be sidelined for an undetermined period of time. VfL wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.
