Copenhagen's Gronkjaer back for Benfica clash

COPENHAGEN, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Copenhagen winger Jesper Gronkjaer has recovered from a groin injury just in time to play Benfica in the Champions League Group F match on Tuesday, but the Danish champions will miss two other players.

The Danish international injured himself in the first match of the group, also against Benfica, in Copenhagen. At the time, the club feared he might need an operation that would rule him out for the entire group stage.

Despite looking rusty, Gronkjaer played a full match at the weekend in Copenhagen's 2-2 draw against Midtjylland in the Danish league.

However, Copenhagen travelled to Lisbon without Norwegian left back Andre Bergdolmo, who has a groin injury, and Ghanaian midfielder Razak Pimpong, who is sick.

Manchester United lead the group with nine points from four matches ahead of Celtic on six, while Copenhagen and Benfica trail on four points each. In the other Group F match on Tuesday, United go to Glasgow to take on Celtic.
