Agger out of Real clash

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger will not travel with the squad for this Wednesday’s Champions League clash at Real Madrid, after failing to recover from a back injury.

Agger joins defender Philipp Degen on the injury list, although captain Steven Gerrard returns from injury and looks set for a place on the subs bench.

Reds boss Rafa Benitez confirmed to the club’s official web site, “Gerrard will travel, Degen is still out and Agger has a problem – everyone else is fit.

“Agger will not travel because of an injury to his back.”

Real Madrid vs Liverpool on Wednesday night kicks off at 7.45pm.
