Manchester - David Silva will not play in the second leg of Manchester City's Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid after injuring himself in Tuesday's first leg, manager Manuel Pellegrini said.

Silva was obliged to leave the fray in the 40th minute at the Etihad Stadium after damaging his hamstring as he slid in to challenge Gareth Bale, for which he was booked.

City, appearing in their first Champions League semi-final, resume hostilities with Madrid at the Bernabeu next Wednesday and Pellegrini said that his Spanish playmaker will not be able to take part.

"David Silva has a hamstring injury and will not be fit in one week," Pellegrini told BT Sport.

City were also missing Yaya Toure against Madrid due to a thigh problem.
