Bayern München will have to manage without Arjen Robben when they face Hoffenheim on January 18 in their first Bundesliga game of the second half of the season.
The veteran missed Bayern's last five Bundesliga games of 2018 because of a thigh injury that he still hasn't fully recovered from.
"This week hasn't been like I imagined. I will not be ready in time for the Hoffenheim game. I have to see from day to day," Robben told Sky.
Franck Ribery is also likely to miss the Hoffenheim game after the French winger limped out off Bayern's training session on Wednesday with a muscle injury.
