Bayern's Contento sidelined with toe break

FC Bayern München defender Diego Contento is a doubt for his side's UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie against FC Basel 1893 after breaking his toe in training.

UEFA Champions League hopefuls FC Bayern München must make do without defender Diego Contento for at least four weeks after the left-back sustained a broken toe in his left foot.

The 21-year-old, who has made five league appearances for Bayern this season, is on crutches with his foot in a plaster cast following the injury suffered during training with the Bundesliga pacesetters on Friday.

The Munich-born former Germany Under-17 international is hoping to recover in time for Bayern's UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie at FC Basel 1893 on 22 February. Jupp Heynckes' side play the return leg on 13 March.
