Bayern Munich manager Ottmar Hitzfeld is facing an injury crisis ahead of the Uefa Cup encounter against Aberdeen.
Hitzfeld's men travel to Pittodrie Stadium on Thursday for the first leg of their last 32 clash.
Winger Franck Ribery (hamstring) and defender Daniel van Buyten (flu) have both already been ruled out, while Willy Sagnol (knee) is set to stay in Germany as a precaution.
Furthermore, Holland international Mark van Bommel has suffered a knee injury and goalkeeper Michael Rensing has a back problem.
There is some positive news for Hitzfeld, though, as Brazilian defender Breno Borges could make his debut after signing from Sao Paulo in December.
