When Bayern München face AEK Athens in the Champions League on Wednesday, Arjen Robben won't be involved. Meanwhile, it isn't certain if James Rodriguez will play either.
"Arjen Robben will not make it for tomorrow's game. James Rodriguez has a calf problem. We'll have to wait and see if he can play," Bayern München coach Niko Kovac said at a press conference today according to the club.
Bayern haven't been up to their usual standards in the recent weeks, and Kovac says hard work is needed to get the German champions back in form.
"The fun and joy is there. We just need a game where we win by three or four goals. Then things will ease off. We're currently in a phase that we all need to work hard to get through," he said.
Bayern will take on AEK Athens at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday at 21:00 (UTC+1).
