The Brazilian midfield star did not train on Sunday with Carles Rexach's squad, having twisted his left ankle in Saturday's 1-1 draw against La Liga rivals Real Madrid at Camp Nou.
Rivaldo's absence will give fellow Brazilian Marcio Geovanni a chance to return to the Barca line-up for Tuesday's match, as well as young midfielder Roberto Trashorras.
Barcelona go into the match at Ali Sami Yen stadium needing a result against the Turkish outfit in order to reach the quarter finals and the club will be without Dutch midfielder Phillip Cocu through suspension and Sergi, Gerard, Dani, and Swede Patrik Andersson through injury.
