The Slovenia international picked up the injury during his side's 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 22 and missed the subsequent 3-1 loss at 1. FSV Mainz 05 on Sunday with what it was originally feared was just a muscular injury.

Further tests carried out on Monday revealed greater damage than first feared, with the lower part of Kampl's left leg placed in plaster. The 25-year-old has been an almost ever-present for Die Werkself this season, making 19 Bundesliga appearances following his arrival from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

Leverkusen welcome SV Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Wednesday.
