Injured Ribery, Robben to miss Bayern trip to Werder

BERLIN (Reuters) - Bayern Munich wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben will miss their Bundesliga game against Werder Bremen on Saturday after picking up injuries in Wednesday’s 7-0 Champions League demolition of Shakhtar Donetsk, the club said on Thursday.

Dutchman Robben, Bayern’s top scorer this season with 17 league goals, limped off after 19 minutes with a pinched nerve in his thigh.

Team mate Ribery lasted an hour before the Frenchman went off with a sprained ankle after scoring in Bayern’s record-equalling victory that sent them through to the last eight.

Bayern are top of the Bundesliga and will go 14 points clear if they beat in-form Werder, with second-placed VfL Wolfsburg in action against Freiburg on Sunday.
