Rui Costa to miss Benfica's clash with United

LISBON, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Benfica playmaker Rui Costa will miss Tuesday's Champions League Group F clash with Manchester United after failing to recover from a thigh injury, a club official said on Monday.

The 34-year-old international, who also missed his side's draw against FC Copenhagen, suffered the right thigh injury during a Premier League match against Boavista two weeks ago.

Rui Costa returned this season to the club that launched his career after 12 years in Italy.

Benfica beat United 2-1 in Lisbon last year when the English side failed to reach the knockout stage for the first time since 1994/95.
