Bayern Munich have suffered a blow with the news that Diego Contento has been ruled out of action for a number of weeks.
The Germany youth international had started this season in the starting XI for Bayern.
But now the 20-year-old left-back needs surgery on a hernia problem which will sideline him for a number of weeks.
"Diego Contento is injured," Bayern boss Louis van Gaal told Deutsche Presseagentur.
"We are going to be without Contento for some time and I like to have a look at our opponents before making a choice on his replacement.
"We have Holger Badstuber, Edson Braafheid and Danijel Pranjic. They are well able to play on that position in the meantime."
