Stricken Robben in hospital drama

The Dutchman opened the scoring before being stretchered off in Bayern Munich's DFB Pokal round of 16 victory over Augsburg
Bayern Munich is sweating on the fitness of Arjen Robben after the Dutchman was taken to hospital on Wednesday night.

Robben was substituted after only 16 minutes of Bayern's DFB Pokal round of 16 encounter with Augsburg following a nasty collision with hosts' goalkeeper Marwin Hitz, leaving him with a gash on his right knee.

The winger had to be stretchered off as he was unable to walk off the field and was replaced by Thomas Muller.

There is no indication of how long Robben could be sidelined, but the Bavarians' sporting director Matthias Sammer says the 29-year-old was taken to hospital to cleanse the wound.

It put a dampener on what was a successful night for Pep Guardiola's men as they overcame Augsburg 2-0 to seal their place in the next round.

Robben had initially given Bayern the lead after only four minutes before his night came to an abrupt end when he collided with Hitz.

The Oranje star's replacement Muller scored the clincher on 78 minutes after good work by Jerome Boateng.
