Eto'o out of Champions League fixture

10:20 am on 2 April 2014

The English football club Chelsea will be without Samuel Eto'o for their Champions League quarter-final first leg against Paris St Germain tomorrow after the striker failed to recover from a hamstring strain.

The Cameroon international was replaced shortly after scoring in his side's 6-nil Premier League win over Arsenal 10 days ago and missed last weekend's shock loss to Crystal Palace.

Eto'o was not included in the 19-man squad which travelled to Paris, with Fernando Torres likely to play in his absence.

Midfielder Nemanja Matic and winger Mohamed Salah are ineligible, after joining Chelsea in the January transfer window, and left back Ashley Cole remains out with knee ligament damage.
