Bayern lose Hargreaves for Real Madrid clash

February 27, 2007

Owen Hargreaves has almost certainly been ruled out of Bayern Munich's Champions League clash with Real Madrid next week due to injury.

The England international has only just returned from a broken leg which forced him to miss much of the first half of the season.

Bayern Munich revealed on their website that he would be unavailable for the Bundesliga clash against Hertha Berlin at the weekend due to an ankle problem.

Hargreaves has missed Bayern's last two training sessions and will now be forced to rest, meaning it is likely he miss the second leg of the Round of 16 clash with the Spanish giants on February 7.
