Bad news for Bayern Munich just a week ahead of the crucial match against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League Semifinals. Midfielder Arturo Vidal injured his right knee in Sunday’s training session and it looks like he will definitely miss at least the first leg of the Semifinals.

This would be a massive loss for Bayern given that Vidal seemed to be determined to earn revenge against Real Madrid.

On the other side, Los Blancos are healthy and Nacho is their only player on the injury report. The defender could also be back in time for the opening leg of the tie even though he would be a reserve if everybody else is ready to go.

Vidal is a key midfielder for Bayern but the German side have a deep squad and coach Jupp Heynckes will surely be able to replace his presence in their center of the field.
