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.
