Hummels, who suffered a tear to the ligament in his right ankle on Sunday and faces a race to be fit for the return leg in Madrid on April 18, told the German daily 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».

As well as this week’s Champions League first leg, Hummels will sit out Saturday’s Bundesliga away match at Bayer Leverkusen at the very least.
