PSV Eindhoven striker Arouna Kone will miss Tuesday's Uefa Champions League tie against English side Liverpool because of injury.
The Ivorian has not yet recovered from the knee injury that ruled him out of last weekend's Nations Cup qualifier against Madagascar.
Kone's absence is a blow to the Dutch side ahead of the first-leg of the quarter final clash in Eindhoven as they have two other players on the injury list.
"Kone is definitely ruled out of Tuesday's game, PSV coach Ronald Koeman said.
"We have a lot of physical problems and games like these against Liverpool really take it out of the players."
Meanwhile, Liverpool's Malian midfielder Mohammed Sissoko will miss Tuesday's game because he is suspended.
