A glass holding Derdiyok's toothbrush fell and shattered on his bathroom floor, opening a cut on the 23-year-old's foot that required seven stitches.

Derdiyok will now miss Saturday's match with Stuttgart as well as a game with Bundesliga co-leaders Borussia Dortmund.

The Swiss forward, who leads Leverkusen with nine goals in all competitions, is also likely out for the club's Champions League first-leg match against Barcelona on Feb. 14.
