Pulled calf muscle
The Argentinian suffered a pulled calf muscle during the 2-1 league win at Hannover 96 on Saturday in which he scored. "It's going to be a close thing", said coach Ottmar Hitzfeld when asked about the prospect of Demichelis, an unused substitute in the first leg, recovering in time. On the bright side for Bayern, Hitzfeld has both goalkeeper Oliver Kahn and midfielder Mark van Bommel available after missing last week's 2-2 draw in Milan through suspension
