Demichelis added to list of injury concerns

The medical unit at Bayern's Säbener Strasse training ground was a busy place on Easter Sunday morning as Martin Demichelis joined recent casualties Lucio, Owen Hargreaves und Hasan Salihamidzic in receiving treatment.

The Argentine, on target in Saturday's 2-1 victory away to Hanover, was suffering from "a minor strain," according to coach Ottmar Hitzfeld. The versatile defender is now rated doubtful for Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final return against AC Milan. "It'll be very, very tight," Hitzfeld summarised.

<b>Light training for Lucio and Co</b>

Lucio, Hargreaves and Salihamidzic remained absent from the full squad programme, undertaking light exercise aimed at regeneration instead. "We're gradually bringing them back up to full speed," explained Hitzfeld, declining to predict whether the trio, all of whom missed the Hanover clash, would be fit in time for the European tie.

"We can't say anything yet. We'll take it one day at a time, and there's still a little way to go before the match," the coach added. Lucio and Co will pursue a specially tailored programme up until the day of the Milan showdown.

<b>'Poldi': We must build on our momentum</b>

Willy Sagnol, who sustained a serious knee injury in northern Italy and has already undergone corrective surgery, is a definite absentee in midweek. Christian Lell deputised at right-back in Hanover.

"Beating Hanover was good news for Wednesday," Hitzfeld reasoned, declaring himself "optimistic" for the Champions League tie. "We have a chance, but we'll need to be on top form." Lukas Podolski called on his team-mates "to build on the momentum from the second half against Hanover."
