Claudio Pizarro to miss Werder Bremen's tie with Tottenham
Reuters - 4 years ago

Werder Bremen's Claudio Pizarro is likely to miss their first Champions League group match against Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow as he is still suffering with a muscle injury.

Pizarro missed the side's 0-0 Bundesliga draw against Bayern Munich on Saturday. "I do not think I will be able to play [against Spurs]," he said.

The 31-year-old former Chelsea striker pulled a thigh muscle during Bremen's 4-2 win over Cologne in late August and missed Peru's internationals against Jamaica and Canada.

Apart from Pizarro, the Bremen coach, Thomas Schaaf, will be missing central defenders Naldo and Per Mertesacker, who are also injured.
