Soccer-Monaco's Falcao ruled out of Man City clash

MONACO, March 15 (Reuters) - Monaco suffered a blow ahead of their Champions League last-16 second-leg game against Manchester City on Wednesday when striker Radamel Falcao was left out of the side because of a hip injury.

Colombian Falcao, who scored two goals in his team’s 5-3 defeat at the Etihad stadium in the first leg, sustained the injury last weekend in a Ligue 1 match.

He was back in training on Monday but failed a late fitness test for the game against City in Monaco in which Kylian Mbappe and Valere Germain will start up front for the hosts. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Ed Osmond)
