Bayer suffer Aranguiz blow


Bayer Leverkusen have been hit by the news they will have to do without Charles Aranguiz for a period after he suffered a calf injury.

The playmaker picked up the problem in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund and now the club have confirmed the Chile international is set for some time on the sidelines.

Leverkusen have not yet committed to a timeline for when they 28-year-old will return and it’s thought the problem is still being assessed by the club’s medical team before a potential date is agreed upon.

The club, however, have said they hope to have Aranguiz back before the midway point in the Bundesliga season.
