Madrid: Angel di Maria has been left out of Real Madrid's squad for Tuesday's Champions League match at CSKA Moscow after apparently aggravating a leg muscle injury.

The Argentina international made his first appearance of 2012 in Saturday's 4-0 league win over Racing Santander, and scored the Spanish leaders' third goal 10 minutes after coming on in the 63rd.

But Di Maria went down awkwardly near the end of the match, appearing to injure the same right leg that had kept him sidelined since December.

Madrid say Di Maria, Lassana Diarra and Hamit Altintop were not included in Sunday's 21-man squad for the first leg of the last-16 match due to injuries, while fullback Alvaro Arbeloa does return.
