Bayern Munich's Danijel Pranjic faces injury lay-off

Croatia international sustained a muscular problem in the weekend's Bundesliga game and faces a spell on the sidelines
German powerhouse Bayern Munich have received some disappointing news on the injury front in the aftermath of their impressive 5-1 Bundesliga win over rivals Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend, with midfielder Danijel Pranjic sustaining a muscular problem during the victory.

The former Heerenveen star was part of the starting XI against Leverkusen, but lasted only 15 minutes before he was forced to leave the pitch due to injury.

Coach Andries Jonker revealed after the match that it's unlikely that the Croatian will have recovered in time for next week's match against Eintracht Frankfurt.

"I don't think Danijel will be there next week," Jonker was quoted as saying by Kicker.

Bayern have climbed to third spot in the table, and into the Champions League slots, following this weekend's results.
