Man City's Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri ruled out of Champions League semi final first leg clash with Real Madrid
Midfielder Yaya Toure has been ruled out of the first leg of Manchester City's Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid on Tuesday with a thigh injury.
Toure was hurt in Saturday's 4-0 defeat of Stoke in the Barclays Premier League and is also doubtful for Sunday's trip to Southampton.
Midfielder Samir Nasri is the only other injured player but the Frenchman has not been registered to play in this stage of the competition anyway. Captain Vincent Kompany and forward Kevin De Bruyne return after being rested at the weekend.
Provisional squad: Hart, Caballero, Zabaleta, Sagna, Kompany, Otamendi, Mangala, Demichelis, Kolarov, Clichy, Toure, Fernando, Fernandinho, Delph, De Bruyne, Navas, Sterling, Silva, Aguero, Bony, Iheanacho.
