Real's Cannavaro and Diarra out of Olympiakos match

MADRID, Oct 23 (Reuters) Real Madrid will be without centre back Fabio Cannavaro and midfielder Mahamadou Diarra for tomorrow's Champions League Group C match against Olympiakos at the Bernabeu.

The two players were left out of the squad today after failing to recover from minor knee injuries that have prevented them from training with the rest of the team.

Sergio Ramos is expected to move into central defence alongside Christoph Metzelder, with Michel Salgado coming in at right back.

Argentine international Fernando Gago is likely to take Diarra's place in the centre of midfield.

Real will also be without injured trio Arjen Robben, Gabriel Heinze and Pepe, all missing through muscle tears.

The Spanish giants and Olympiakos are joint top of Group C with four points from two matches.
