Daniel Agger has been ruled out of Liverpool's UEFA Champions League clash with Real Madrid through injury.
The Danish international missed Sunday's draw with Manchester City with a back injury and he has not recovered in time to make the trip to the Spanish capital.
Agger and Philipp Degen are Rafa Benitez's only two injury problems with Steven Gerrard having been included in the travelling squad.
"Gerrard will travel, Degen is still out and Agger has a problem - everyone else is fit," Benitez told the club's official website.
"Agger will not travel because of an injury to his back."
