Rami ruled out of Valencia's trip to PSG

Central defender Adil Rami will be a key absentee from Valencia CF's UEFA Champions League last-16 second leg at Paris Saint-Germain FC after he suffered a thigh tear.

Valencia CF defender Adil Rami has been ruled out of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg at Paris Saint-Germain FC after suffering a thigh tear.

The 27-year-old struck a last-minute goal in the first instalment last week to make it 2-1 and raise hopes that the Spanish side can yet reach the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. They will have to do without the French international, however, after he hobbled off just before half-time during Valencia's 2-0 Liga home victory against RCD Mallorca on Sunday.

Examinations revealed a tear to his left thigh, an injury that will keep the centre-back sidelined for three weeks. Rami, who has missed just one game in the competition this season, therefore sits out the trip to Paris on 6 March.
