Boost for Gunners as Ribery is ruled out

Franck Ribery Franck Ribéry has been ruled out of the second leg of Bayern Munich’s Champions League tie with Arsenal on Wednesday with an ankle injury.

The France international suffered a ligament strain in his left ankle during his side’s 3-2 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday. The midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and defender Jérôme Boateng, who are banned, will also miss the match at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern, who hold a 3-1 lead from the away leg, are also sweating on the fitness of Arjen Robben, who was not involved at the weekend because of a calf problem.

The German team have plenty of strength in depth, though, with the likes of Luiz Gustavo and Xherdan Shaqiri ready to come in.
