LISBON, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Benfica midfielder Armando Petit will be out of action for a minimum of three matches, including Tuesday's Champions League opener against AC Milan, due to a knee injury, coach Jose Antonio Camacho said.

The international was carried off the pitch on a stretcher after making a tackle in his team's 3-0 league win over Naval on Saturday.
