Injured Guti out of El Clasico

MADRID - Real Madrid midfielder Guti will miss this Saturday's "Clasico" match at home to league leaders Barcelona after he suffered ligament damage to his left ankle, the club said on Wednesday.

Guti, who scored a superb freekick in the 4-2 comeback win at Sevilla last weekend, hurt the ankle in training and the injury was picked up by a scan, the club said on their website.

His absence, for a yet-to-be-determined number of matches, is a blow for coach Juande Ramos and the champions as they seek to cut Barca's four-point lead at the top with five matches remaining.
