Ivan Perisic is a major doubt for Bayern Munich’s Champions League last-16 clash against Chelsea after fracturing his ankle in training.

Perisic is expected to be out of action for a month, which would rule him out of the first leg at Stamford Bridge on February 25.

Bayern’s interim manager Hans Flick confirmed that Perisic would be missing for ‘at least four weeks’.
