London: Midfielder Javier Mascherano will miss Liverpool`s Champions League clash with Fiorentina on Tuesday with a tight hamstring, the Premier League club said.

The Argentine was not part of the 18-man squad that travelled to Italy for the Group E encounter.

Fellow midfielder Yossi Benayoun is in the squad although he suffered a leg injury during Liverpool`s 6-1 defeat of Hull City on Saturday and is doubtful.
Liverpool beat Hungarian newcomers Debrecen 1-0 in their first group match, with Dirk Kuyt scoring the winner and the Dutchman said Liverpool would take heart from their previous trip to Italy when they beat Inter Milan 1-0.

"That was a great night in the San Siro, I enjoyed every minute of it and hopefully we can do the same against Fiorentina," he told Liverpool`s website.
"It will be great if we can win in Florence and get six points from the first two games. It would give us more confidence ahead of the other group games."
