Robinho likely to miss Real Madrid clash with Roma

February 11, 2008

MADRID, Feb 11 (Reuters) - Real Madrid's Brazilian forward Robinho is likely to miss the first leg of his side's Champions League last 16 tie at AS Roma because of a torn stomach muscle.

Real, who play Roma on February 19, said on their website that the winger would be out of action for between 10 and 15 days.

The 24-year-old, one of Real's stand-out players this season, sustained the injury in the opening minutes of his side's 7-0 thrashing of Valladolid at the Bernabeu on Sunday.

He will also miss Saturday's league match at Real Betis.
