Munich: Bayern Munich midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk will miss the second leg of the side`s Champions League semi-final at Lyon after contracting a stomach virus, the club said on Monday.

The Ukraine international was seen as a defensive option after Bayern centre backs Martin Demichelis and Daniel van Buyten picked up knocks in the 1-1 league draw against Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday.
Bayern said the two injured players had travelled to France but remained doubtful for Tuesday`s tie.
Suspended duo Franck Ribery, sent off in the German side`s 1-0 first leg win, and Danijel Pranjic will also miss the match.
