Bayer Leverkusen will probably have to manage without Santiago Arias for a long while.


The right-back was forced off with a horror ankle injury in the first half of Colombia's 3-0 win over Venezuela.

An official diagnosis is still pending, but the injury will certainly require surgery and a long rehabilitation phase.

Arias only recently joined Leverkusen on loan from Atletico Madrid.
