Robben sidelined again for Bayern

Munich, Germany (Sports Network) - Bayern Munich will be without winger Arjen Robben for at least the next week after he picked up a minor muscle tear while on international duty with the Netherlands.

Robben picked up the knock in his team's 0-0 friendly draw with Germany on Wednesday, which came shortly after the 28-year-old overcame a back problem.

The injury will prevent Robben from featuring in Saturday's game against Nurnberg while he also will miss the Champions League clash with Valencia on Tuesday.

Robben has been limited to just five league appearances for Bayern this season because of injury and the club is hopeful that he will be fit in time for next week's home contest against Hannover.
