Benfica's Garcia out for Zenit match

Benfica midfielder Javi Garcia has been ruled out for the first leg of the club's Champions League round of 16 encounter with Zenit St Petersburg on Wednesday.

Garcia missed the club's 4-1 win over Nacional in league play on Saturday through injury, and manager Jorge Jesus confirmed after the match that Garcia will not be making the trip to Russia.

The 25-year-old has scored one goal in 12 league appearances this season for Benfica, which finished on top of Group C ahead of Basel and Manchester United.
