Hamburg lose Petric until next year
SV Hamburg are likely to miss their Croatia forward Mladen Petric in the remaining three games of the year due to injury, the Bundesliga club said on Friday.
Hamburg said that Petric, 29, suffered a thigh-muscle injury in training ahead of Saturday's game at SC Freiburg. Petric was also sidelined in October with a calf injury.
Hamburg rank seventh in an injury-plagued and at times indifferent Bundesliga season which takes a winter break in mid-December.
