Borussia Dortmund live updates
Borussia Dortmund playmaker Mario Gotze has been ruled out of this weekend's Champions League Final against his future club Bayern Munich, due to a hamstring tear.
Nicola Rizzoli of Italy will referee the Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich on Saturday.
The 41-year-old Italian has been an international referee since 2007 and was in charge of the 2010 Europa League final between Fulham and Atletico Madrid in Hamburg, as well as three matches at Euro 2012.
Rizzoli will be assisted by his fellow Italians Renato Faverani and Andrea Stefani. The fourth official will be Damir Skomina from Slovenia and the two additional assistant referees, Gianluca Rocchi and Paolo Tagliavento are also from Italy.
Schalke defender Christoph Metzelder has confirmed he will retire at the end of the season.
The 32-year-old former Germany international will hang up his boots after Saturday's trip to Freiburg.
"I am just being honest with myself and I feel that I am no longer physically able to play consistently at this level," he said.
"And after 13 years, the fire inside me, which is necessary for this job, has burnt out."
