Sneijder out of semi-final.

WESLEY SNEIJDER is set to miss the second leg of Inter Milan's Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.

The former Real Madrid midfielder was substituted at half-time in Saturday's 3-1 Serie A victory over Atalanta after damaging a muscle in his left leg.

And Inter confirmed that "tests have shown he has pulled the rectus femoris muscle in his left leg".

The club did not reveal how long Sneijder will be sidelined for but he is almost certain to miss the trip to the Nou Camp on Wednesday where they will be defending a 3-1 lead.

. Atletico Madrid warmed up for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final against Liverpool with a home victory over lowly Tenerife that ends a run of three successive league defeats.
