Bayern Munich will be without midfielder Hamit Altintop due to knee surgery that was held on Tuesday. Altintop had to have cartilage repaired in his right knee. He will miss the team's final two Bundesliga games against Duisburg and Hertha Berlin as well as their UEFA cup match against Aris Thessaloniki. Bayern will hit their winter break after these matches and return after that. Altintop is expected to return in the new year.
