Bayern Munich midfielder major doubt for Real Madrid clash

Luka Modric

Bayern Munich midfielder, Arturo Vidal could miss their crucial UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg clash with Madrid as he is set for a minor surgery on his knee, Tuesday the club confirmed.

The Chilean suffered a setback on Sunday in his first training session since he sustained a knee injury against Sevilla earlier this month. Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes provided an update on the fitness of Vidal on Monday, with the German tactician playing down fears of a long-term absence for the South American: "I've met Dr Müller-Wohlfahrt telephoned". He's had an MRI scan. A loose piece of the knee joint was removed and Vidal's meniscus was repaired, said a statement.

The Chile global had only missed six matches for Bayern this term due to a couple of injuries and suspensions, but this latest setback will prevent him from featuring in their final four league clashes, the Champions League two-legged affair with Los Blancos and the DfB Pokal Cup showdown with Bayer Leverkusen.

Commonwealth Games success a boost before Asian Games: Mary Kom
Today was just a wee bit of a slower pace for me so it was out of my comfort zone, but I thought I had done enough to win. It was the ideal tonic the boxer needed to do the one thing she hasn't done yet - win a medal at the Commonwealth Games.

"He's already on his way to Augsburg". The Chile midfielder will miss both legs of Bayern's Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid, and the German Cup final should the side get past Bayer Leverkusen in Tuesday's semifinal without him.

In those six seasons, they picked up five league titles but there is still a feeling of anti-climax when it comes to European competition.
