BERLIN - Schalke 04's Christoph
Metzelder, Mario Gavranovic and Peer Kluge are doubtful for
their Champions League quarter-final first leg at holders Inter
Milan next week after being injured against St Pauli on Friday.
Central defender Metzelder (pictured) broke his nose and could
potentially play with a face mask, but 21-year-old forward
Gavranovic's ankle injury looked more serious, coach Ralf
Rangnick said on Saturday.
Midfielder Kluge picked up an abdmominal muscle injury in
the game at St Pauli, which was abandoned after a linesman was
hit by a beer cup.
"Christoph could maybe play with a mask," Rangnick said,
adding that Swiss international Gavranovic would undergo further
tests at the weekend to determine the extent of the damage.
Schalke, who are 10th in the Bundesliga and qualified for
the German Cup final before Rangnick replaced Felix Magath two
weeks ago, travel to Inter on April 5 before hosting the
Italians on April 13 in Gelsenkirchen.
