Bayern to lose out on Lucio

Lucio could miss FC Bayern München's final UEFA Champions League Group A game against Club Brugge KV with an injury to his left knee.
Centre-back Lucio could miss FC Bayern München's final UEFA Champions League Group A game against Club Brugge KV with an injury to his left knee.

Knee trouble
The 27-year-old Brazilian international has been ruled out of the weekend Bundesliga trip to VfB Stuttgart after hurting his left knee in the German champions' 2-1 win against 1. FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday. It remains to be seen if he will be back for the match in Belgium on 7 December.

Tactical moves
Martin Demichelis will likely fill the gap in Felix Magath's defence left by Lucio's absence with Owen Hargreaves moving into midfield. Bayern have already qualified for the Round of 16 but must beat Club Brugge to be certain of topping their group.
