Toure out of Real clash

Yaya Toure will play no part in Manchester City's Champions League semi-final first leg on Tuesday, manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed.

Toure picked up a thigh injury during City's 4-0 win over Stoke on Saturday and was unable to train with the rest of his team-mates on Monday morning.

Speaking to reporters, Pellegrini revealed that Tuesday's game will come too soon for the 32-year-old and he is worried that he could miss the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"Yaya I think is going to be out. He’s not recovered from the muscle injury," Pellegrini said.

"We'll see during the week in the way he improves. I don't think he will be fit for Sunday [to face Southampton in the Premier League].

"We will see for the second leg but it depends on the way he improves this week."

Toure's absence means Fernandinho and Fernando will resume their partnership for the visit of Real Madrid to the Etihad Stadium. They started both legs of the quarter-final win over Paris Saint-Germain and Pellegrini is pleased to be able to call on the duo for Tuesday's clash.

"Whenever they have played the two Brazilians have played well and had some very good games in Europe," he stated.

"For Example against PSG and Roma. I am very confident in what they can provide for us."
