Thiago Alcantara will not be fit in time for Bayern München's home clash with Fortuna Düsseldorf on Saturday.
The Spanish midfield maestro has missed Bayern's last two games due to an adductor injury and remains sidelined for the time being.
"Thiago is not ready yet. He will need some time," Bayern coach Hansi Flick said at thre pre-match press conference on Friday.
The German champions will still have to manage without the long-term injured Niklas Süle, Philippe Coutinho and Corentin Tolisso as well.
"I think Thiago will be the first one to come back. Niklas Süle is making good progress, but we have to go step by step. Coutinho should soon be back in team training. With Tolisso, it's better now, but we won't take any risks," said about the current injury status.
