Toure set to miss Real Madrid clash

25 April 2016, 22:00

Manchester - Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is expected to miss his side's Champions League semi-final first leg against Real Madrid on Tuesday, manager Manuel Pellegrini revealed on Monday.

The Ivorian did not take part in City's final pre-match training session on Monday after picking up a muscular injury towards the end of Sunday's 4-0 Premier League win over Stoke City.

"I think he's going to be out," Pellegrini told a press conference at the City Football Academy training complex. "He hasn't recovered from a muscle injury."

With Toure likely to miss out, Brazilians Fernando and Fernandinho are expected to be paired together in central midfield.

"The two Brazilian lads have played well when they have played together, and in Europe as well," Pellegrini said.

"For example against PSG (in the quarter-finals). I'm very confident in what they can provide."

Captain Vincent Kompany, who has struggled with calf injuries this season, was able to train, having been rested for the victory against Stoke.

While Real Madrid are chasing an 11th European Cup, City are appearing in the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time.
