Schalke’s Benedikt Howedes to miss Bayern Munich clash
April 29, 2011 | In: Articles
Schalke have received some disturbing news from the treatment table ahead of Saturday’s match with Bayern Munich. According to a report from Spox, defender Benedikt Howedes has failed to recover from a muscular strain, and will miss out on the action.
Howedes has been plagued by an abdominal injury over the last week; the knock kept him out of Schalke’s Bundesliga match with Kaiserslautern, as well as Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Manchester United.
The 23-year-old was expected to recover in time for this weekend, but has suffered a setback in his recovery and, in addition to being ruled out of the Bayern match, is currently rated doubtful for the second leg of the United tie next Wednesday.
