Streller sidelined for Basel

Marco Streller will be absent for the rest of FC Basel 1893's UEFA Champions League Group E campaign after tearing a ligament in his left ankle against FC Thun on Saturday.

Marco Streller will miss the remainder of FC Basel 1893's UEFA Champions League Group E fixtures after tearing a ligament in his left ankle during domestic action on Saturday.

The 29-year-old had to be substituted 26 minutes into Basel's 3-1 home loss to FC Thun and is expected to be out until the new year, meaning he will be unavailable for the Group E games against CFR 1907 Cluj on 23 November and FC Bayern München on 8 December. Basel lie bottom of the section on three points, three shy of second-placed AS Roma.

Streller will also miss Switzerland's international friendly against Ukraine on Wednesday, and coach Ottmar Hitzfeld has called up 18-year-old Nassim Ben Khalifa of VfL Wolfsburg as a replacement.
