Schalke will be without defender Atsuto Uchida for their Champions League clash against Galatasaray next Wednesday.

The full-back has picked up a thigh injury that will keep him out of the first leg of their last 16 tie in Turkey.

"Schalke 04 will be without Atsuto Uchida in the coming weeks," reads a statement on the club's official website.

"An MRI scan on Monday [February 11] revealed the Japan international has torn a muscle in his thigh.
