LEVERKUSEN, Germany (AP) - Bayer Leverkusen defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos will miss the rest of the season after tearing a right calf tendon in the 0-0 Europa League draw with Villarreal.

Papadopoulos limped off the pitch during Thursday’s match, and coach Roger Schmidt confirmed the injury on Friday.

Midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu could also miss the Bundesliga match in Stuttgart on Sunday because of a cold.
