MILAN (Reuters) -- Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder was left out of the squad to face Cagliari in Serie A on Saturday (1945 GMT) and could be doubtful for Wednesday's Champions League last-16 first leg at home to Bayern Munich.

The Dutchman limped off with a minor leg-muscle injury during Wednesday's 2-1 win at Fiorentina but had been expected to be fit for the Cagliari game.

Centre back Lucio was also not on coach Leonardo's squad list on Friday for the game against the Sardinians following a knock but said he would be fit for the repeat of last season's European Cup final.

"The match against Bayern is too important. I'll definitely be there," Lucio told reporters.
