- Sergio Aguero will not play Man City's Champions League match against Real Madrid
- Pep Guardiola made the news known after the final Premier League game against Norwich
- The Citizens hold a 2-1 first leg lead as the second leg will be played on August 7
Sergio Aguero will no be available for Manchester City's Champions League round of 16 second leg clash against Real Madrid.
The Citizens recorded an emphatic 2-1 first leg win at the Santiago Bernabeu before the break but will have to face Los Blancos without their star striker.
City boss Pep Guardiola broke the news to journalists shortly after thrashing Norwich City in their final Premier League game of the season.
And when asked whether he will take part against Real on August 7, Guardiola said: “No, I think it will not be possible for the timing,” quoted by Daily Star.
The Argentine suffered a knee injury against Burnley in June and has been in brilliant form this campaign, scoring 23 times in 32 matches.
The Etihad outfit have lost the league crown to neighbours Liverpool but the Spanish boss has stated that winning the Champions League is his ultimate ambition.
Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus were the scorers in the first leg to a Madrid side that was unconvincing in the match which also saw Sergio Ramos sent off.
Zinedine Zidane's side who were shaky in the first leg seem to have bounced back well following their La Liga triumph over Barcelona.
And Guardiola has warned his players that they face a two-week camp to work towards making it through to the last eight of the elite competition.
“Different competition, different opponent, cannot compare,” Guardiola added. “We have two weeks.
"We are going to start to prepare the game, tell them what they should do, try to play the game, do a good game. Arrive in best conditions and we are going to do it.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Sergio Aguero has undergone successful surgery and the Man City striker posted a picture of himself on the hospital bed.
The 32-year-old was substituted in City's 5-0 demolition of Burnley in the Premier League as the Argentine star was hobbled off the pitch in discomfort.
He immediately flew to Barcelona to see Dr Ramon Cugat who is regarded as "the Lionel Messi of medicine" - and immediately went under the knife.
