Champions League: PSG’s Silva Out Of Barca Clash

Paris Saint-Germain will be without captain Thiago Silva for Tuesday’s Champions League last 16 first leg against Barcelona, French media reported on Monday.

Reports said the Brazilian centre-back missed Monday’s final training session ahead of the game at the Parc des Princes – instead watching his teammates do their work while sat on an icebox – and would not make the 18-man squad named by coach Unai Emery.

Silva, 32, had already missed last Friday’s 3-0 win at Bordeaux in Ligue 1 with a minor muscle problem but had been expected to be ready in time to face the Spanish giants.

PSG, who are looking to reach the quarterfinals for the fifth season in succession, are also without ex-Barcelona midfielder Thiago Motta due to suspension. However, Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore could feature.
