A detailed examination by FC Bayern's club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt revealed that David Alaba suffered a small muscle fibre tear in the back of his right thigh in Saturday's home loss to Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Alaba will sit out training for the next few days and then start to increase the load on the muscle. The full-back has pulled out of Austria's upcoming UEFA Nations League tie with Northern Ireland, but will be available for Bayern's next league game in Wolfsburg on 20 October.
