MADRID - Real Madrid midfielder Sami
Khedira has been left out of Jose Mourinho's squad for
Wednesday's Champions League semi-final first leg at home to
Barcelona because of a leg injury, the club said on Tuesday.
The German international picked up the adductor problem in
his right leg in last week's King's Cup final victory over Barca
and missed Real's La Liga game at Valencia on Saturday.
Khedira's place in the starting lineup for the nine-times
winners will likely be taken by France international Lassana
Diarra. Long-term injury victim Fernando Gago also misses out,
while centre-back Ricardo Carvalho is suspended.
The return leg is on May 3 at the Nou Camp and the
successful team will play English Premier League leaders
Manchester United or Bundesliga side Schalke 04 in the final at
London's Wembley stadium on May 28.
