HUMMELS TO MISS MADRID GAME

Bayern Munich’s German internatioal defender Mats Hummels is out of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final home clash with Real Madrid after injuring his ankle in training.

Hummels, who suffered a tear to the ligament in his right ankle on Sunday, will also sit out Saturday’s Bundesliga away match at Bayer Leverkusen.

The German international told Bild, “I definitely won’t be on the pitch on Wednesday.”

“Very sad about missing at least the next two games,” the towering centre-back added on Twitter and posted a picture of him wearing a special recovery boot on Instagram under the caption, “Already trying to recover as fast as possible”.
