Paris Saint-Germain will be without captain Thiago Silva for Tuesday's Champions League last 16 first leg against Barcelona, French media reported on Monday.

Reports said the Brazilian centre-back missed Monday's final training session ahead of the game at the Parc des Princes -- instead watching his teammates do their work while sat on an icebox -- and would not make the 18-man squad named by coach Unai Emery.

Silva, 32, had already missed last Friday's 3-0 win at Bordeaux in Ligue 1 with a minor muscle problem but had been expected to be ready in time to face the Spanish giants.

PSG, who are looking to reach the quarter-finals for the fifth season in succession, are also without ex-Barcelona midfielder Thiago Motta due to suspension. However, Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore could feature.
