Michael Ballack has broken his nose in the 1-0 win at Freiburg in the Bundesliga.

Bayer Leverkusen confirmed the injury on their website on Saturday, after the former Germany captain underwent a check-up at a Freiburg clinic on Friday night after the match.

The Bundesliga side says a decision on whether Ballack plays at Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday won't be made until shortly before the game.

The 35-year-old Ballack scored in the second minute of Leverkusen's win, his first Bundesliga goal for more than five years.
