Bayern Munich defender Willy Sagnol will not play again this season.
The France international suffered a serious knee injury in Tuesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Milan.
Bayern's worst fears have been realised with Sagnol likely to be out of action for around four months.
Sagnol is set to be on crutches for the next four to six weeks before beginning an extensive rehabilitation process.
The 30-year-old stopper is not expected to return until August at the earliest.
Bayern host Milan at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday having drawn the first leg 2-2 in Italy.
