The Real star picked up a groin injury during his side's five-star showing against Sevilla on Sunday and has been ruled out of Wednesday's clash.
It has also been confirmed that Helguera's team-mate Zinedine Zidane is out of the France squad after also sustaining a knock during the Bernabeu victory.
Helguera's withdrawal has left Saez with a defensive headache as Barcelona stalwart Carles Puyol is out of action for around ten days with a hip problem.
As a result, Cesar has joined Deportivo La Coruna pal Joan Capdevila in being called up to the squad.
Cesar has not featured for his country since last November and will be keen to impress ahead of the Euro 2004 finals.
