Van Nistelrooy: Thigh injury
Ruud van Nistelrooy will miss Hamburg's German Cup second round clash against Eintracht Frankfurt through injury.
The Dutch striker was ruled out of Wednesday's cup tie after picking up a thigh injury, the club confirmed.
Van Nistelrooy was injured in their 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich on Friday and will join defender Collin Benjamin, who is nursing a minor knee injury, on the sidelines for the midweek match.
The 34-year-old Van Nistelrooy, in his first full season at Hamburg, is the club's top scorer so far with four goals in nine league games.
