Bayern are set to be without midfielder Thiago for a lengthy period of time. After the 2-1 Champions League win at Anderlecht on Wednesday evening, coach Jupp Heynckes revealed that the Spain international “most probably has a serious muscle injury in his thigh”. Thiago had to be substituted in the 44th minute of the match,

Heynckes was more optimistic about Arjen Robben. “I don’t think it’s as bad,” said the 72 year-old after the German champions’ ninth win in nine games since his return. The Dutchman, who left the field on 48 minutes, has “slight muscular discomfort”, reported Heynckes.
