Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder is set to miss the return-leg of their Champions League semifinal at Barcelona with a thigh strain.

Sneijder underwent medical tests and the results were far from reassuring.

“As planned, this afternoon the Inter medical staff conducted a series of tests on Sneijder,” read a statement on the club website.

“The results showed a strain in the left thigh muscle.”

Although there is no word on how long this will keep him out for, it is not a small injury and recovery for Wednesday is extremely difficult.
