Marseille striker Remy set to miss Inter clash

Marseille striker Loic Remy is set to miss the first leg of the

Champions League matchup with Inter Milan next week because of a

leg injury.

The club said Thursday that Remy picked up a right thigh injury

in Marseille’s 3-1 win over Bourg-Peronnas in the last 16 of the

French Cup on Wednesday and will be sidelined for about three

weeks.

Remy was replaced at halftime by Ghana forward Jordan Ayew. He

is the club’s top scorer in the French league with nine goals this

season and has scored twice in the group stage of the Champions

League.

Marseille hopes to have him back for the second leg at Stadio

Giuseppe Meazza on March 13.
