Gotze facing race to be fit for final

Borussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze faces a battle to be fit for the Champions League final after suffering a suspected thigh tear at the Bernabeu.

• Uersfeld: Unchartered waters
• Delaney: Fitting frantic finale

Gotze, 20, had to be substituted only 12 minutes into his team's 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid in the semi-final second leg, which saw Dortmund progress 4-3 on aggregate.

The club's official match report described the injury as "a suspected torn muscle in his left thigh", and coach Jurgen Klopp told reporters the same late on Tuesday.

It is expected that the Germany international will be out for around three weeks, which would leave him facing a battle to be fit in time for the Champions League final on May 25.

The injury will almost certainly rule him out of this weekend's Bundesliga game at home to champions Bayern Munich, whom Gotze recently agreed to join in a €37 million summer switch.
