Arjen Robben will not being traveling to Bremen for Bayern Munich's Bundesliga match on Saturday, but he has not had a setback with his groin injury.

"No problems. He's just not fit yet," Pep Guardiola said at his prematch press conference.

Robben has missed the past month with a groin injury he sustained while on international duty with the Netherlands. He resumed team training last week, but returned to Bayern's performance center this week to continue his injury rehabilitation.

"It is going pretty well," Robben said to BILD in regards to his rehab. "We were on a good timeframe and the rehab went really well. There is no setback, only a precaution. That way I can be perfectly prepared to push for the team. I will be back with the team in a few days."

Bayern play their third UEFA Champions League group stage match against Arsenal on Tuesday, which could be the match Robben is targeting for a return.
