Bayern Munich chief Rummenigge admits Pavard out of Chelsea clash

Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admits Benjamin Pavard is out of the second-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie with Chelsea.

The France defender collected an ankle injury in training this week.

Rummenigge told Sky Deutschland: "I am optimistic that Benji will only miss the match against Chelsea and that he will be available afterwards if we manage (to get through)."

Bayern host Chelsea next week defending a 3-0 aggregate lead.

In case of passage, the Bavarians will face the winner of Barcelona-Naples.
