Mats Hummels "definitely" out against Real Madrid after training injury

Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels are among the high-profile players to have switched from Dortmund to Bayern in recent years, but Watzke said Aubameyang would only be allowed to move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Mats Hummels had to be carted off the training field on Sunday morning following an injury to his ankle.

"Very sad about missing the next two games", Hummels wrote on his handle, confirming that he will sit out the visit of Real on Wednesday and the Bundesliga trip to Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. Jerome Boateng will certainly partner Martinez in the center of Bayern's defense against Madrid.

Hummels will therefore miss the quarter-final home first leg with reigning European champions Real and faces a race against time to be fit for the April 18 return in Madrid.

With the Bundesliga all but in the bag - Bayern lead RB Leipzig by 10 points - it is the Champions League which offers not only the chance of real glory but gives coach Carlo Ancelotti the opportunity to make the season a spectacular success.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer wasn't available for training on Sunday, while Thomas Muller participated in his first session since his injury.

Lewandowski has scored 38 goals in all competitions for Bayern this season - seven in the Champions League - and is the Bundesliga's top scorer having netted 26 times so far this season.
