Robben to miss El Clasico

23 April 2009 07:45
Arjen Robben has been ruled out of next month's El Clasico with yet another muscle injury. The Netherlands international has been plagued with injuries since moving to Real Madrid from Chelsea and is set to be sidelined for up to three weeks after picking up his latest problem in Tuesday's win against Getafe. It is the ninth time Robben has suffered from muscular trouble since joining Real. Juande Ramos will also be without Pepe for at least one match after he was sent off for kicking Getafe's Javier Casquero during Real's 3-2 win. Wesley Sneijder also looks like he will miss the rest of the campaign after picking up an injury in the recent win against Huelva. Real host league leaders Barcelona at the Bernabeu in the first weekend of May.
