Tuesday’s loss to Liverpool in the Audi Cup left Bayern München with few injury concerns.

James Rodríguez and Thiago Alcântara joins the injury list ahead of Saturday’s DFL-Supercup clash with Borussia Dortmund.

The Colombian international suffered the setback as the Bavarians were defeated 0-3 by Liverpool. Rodríguez received a muscle injury in his thigh and will also miss the opening game of 2017-18 Bundesliga season.
Thiago picked up an abdominal muscle injury but is, however, expected to miss only the Supercup.

The club’s official statement read:

“FC Bayern will have to make do without new signing James Rodríguez in the coming weeks.”

Meanwhile, David Alaba also picked up a knock and is doubtful in the Der Klassiker.
