Mats Hummels’ game against Hamburg came to a premature end following a blow to his knee. The FCB centre back had to be substituted in the 51st minute after suffering the injury in his right knee just before half time. “I took a blow to it. The first tests have shown nothing wrong. But we’ll have to look at it again more closely,” said Hummels after the game.

The 1-0 victory over Hamburger SV on Saturday was his eight win in eight competitive matches at the helm of FCB. Ancelotti now has the chance to equal the Bundesliga record (held by Andre Schubert and Willi Entenmann) when the champions host Köln next weekend.
