Tiago was stretchered off during Saturday's Primera Liga game against Almeria after a late challenge from compatriot Helder Barbosa.

Tiago will undergo surgery on his wrist on Tuesday and is expected to miss his team's next few games, including the first-leg clash against Milan at the San Siro on February 19.
