Totti set to miss Man United match

Francesco Totti is almost certainly out of Roma's UEFA Champions League meeting with Manchester United on Tuesday after suffering a thigh injury in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Cagliari.

The Roma captain played the full 90 minutes in Sardinia, cancelling out Matteo Ferrari's own goal with a sumptuous free-kick on the stroke of half-time, yet later complained of a problem in his left thigh.

After initial examinations club doctors have prescribed "a few days of rest", meaning he would miss the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against United at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old is likely to be replaced by Mirko Vucinic, who came in for the injured Totti for two group stage games in November and scored twice.
