German champions Bayern Munich have been dealt a major injury blow ahead of their all-important Champions League last 16 second leg clash with Premier League club Liverpool.
Bayern will host the Reds at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night in that second leg with a place in the Champions League quarterfinals up for grabs.
The Bavarian giants won’t be able to field experienced winger Arjen Robben after it was revealed that he will miss the game with a calf injury sustained in training.
His injury status was confirmed by Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac during his pre-match press conference on Thursday afternoon ahead of their league game with VFL Wolfsburg at the weekend.
