Alaba sustains capsular strain
David Alaba had to be subbed off with injury early into Bayern's home match against FSV Mainz. A thorough examination by FCB's medical unit on Saturday afternoon revealed that Alaba sustained a capsular strain in his left knee.
"It isn't a very big problem," coach Carlo Ancelotti commented after the match. It remains to be seen whether Alaba will be available for the DFB Cup semi-final clash with Borussia Dortmund. "We'll see on a day-to-day basis and decide whether he can play," according to Ancelotti.
