The influential 31-year-old midfielder picked up a calf injury in his right leg two weeks ago and has missed the side's last three matches, including the second leg of the semi-final against Werder Bremen.

Uruguayan striker Walter Pandiani, the UEFA Cup's leading scorer with 11 goals, continued training apart from the rest of the squad. Pandiani is recovering from a knee injury picked up last Sunday, though it is not believed to be serious.
