Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas will miss the second leg of his side's Champions League round of 16 tie against FC Porto due to a hamstring injury.
The 22-year-old Spain international midfielder limped out of the weekend 3-1 win over Burnley and has not recovered sufficiently to feature at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Manager Arsene Wenger has previously stated that he might gamble on Fabregas' fitness, telling his club's official website: "I'm ready to take the gamble, but it depends how big the gamble is.
"If it is more than a 50 per cent chance his hamstring goes then I will not take it."
In-demand Benfica winger Angel Di Maria has played down rumours linking his with a certain exit from the Portuguese giants in the summer.

"My head is with Benfica and I will not speak about my possible exit until the end of the season."
