Suspected broken leg shock for Hargreaves

England international Owen Hargreaves could be facing a lengthy lay-off after sustaining a suspected broken leg in Bayern's 2-1 defeat away to Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday. The Munich star collapsed to the turf on 24 minutes following a heavy challenge by home midfielder Thorben Marx, who was booked by referee Florian Meyer for the studs-up tackle. Argentine enforcer Martin Demichelis came on for Hargreaves, who limped from the field and had to be helped to the dressing room by members of the visitors' coaching staff. An on-the-spot diagnosis revealed a suspected fracture of the left fibula, the second of the bones in the lower leg. The player will undergo an immediate examination and x-ray after the Bayern squad's flight home to Munich in the evening.

<b>Milestones for Schweini and Pizza</b>
Congratulations are in order to Bastian Schweinsteiger and Claudio Pizarro after the Reds stars passed personal milestones in Saturday's trip to Bielefeld. 'Schweini' made his 100th German top flight appearance, while Peru hitman 'Pizza' clocked up a 200th Bundesliga outing, his 144th in a Bayern shirt.

<b>Personal hearing for Lucio on Wednesday</b>
Bayern and Brazil defender Lucio is to contest a three-match German Cup ban imposed by a German Football Association (DFB) disciplinary tribunal after requesting a personal hearing, scheduled for 1 pm this coming Wednesday. The player was handed the ban after seeing a straight red card at the start of extra-time in his club's first round Cup tie away to St Pauli on 9 September. Bayern lodged an appeal after examining video footage of the incident, and will argue that the centre-half had not retaliated but was simply attempting to wriggle clear of his opponent's grasp.
