Roma skipper Francesco Totti is a major doubt for the first leg of his side´s Champions League quarter-final clash against Manchester United, his club confirmed on Sunday.

The talismanic striker, who scored the equaliser with a stunning free-kick in Saturday´s 1-1 draw at Cagliari, suffered a thigh injury during the game and is not expected to recover in time for Tuesday´s tie.

"At the end of Saturday´s match Francesco Totti complained of pain in his left thigh," read a brief statement on Roma´s official website www.asroma.it.
