Arsenal's William Gallas to miss Champions League match against Barcelona

French defender William Gallas will not play the first leg of the Arsenal vs. Barcelona clash.

As we know, the London team is facing one of the most difficult games in the last years, hoping that they can eliminate Messi's team and reach the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was clear when he said that Gallas would not recover from a calf injury in time to battle Guardiola's squad: "William is back from his rehabilitation today and I believe he will return to full training this weekend. However, he is too short to be available for our game at Birmingham this weekend - and certainly as well for the clash with Barcelona.
