It is official, Serge Gnabry suffered a torn thigh muscle in Bayern Munich’s 1-0 victory over RB Leipzig.

Per an official release on, the club expects Gnabry to miss the final game of 2018, but did not provide any longer term information on when it expects Gnabry to be back in the fold.

FC Bayern will have to play the last Bundesliga game of the year on Saturday without Serge Gnabry. The winger suffered a torn thigh muscle in his left leg in the home game against RB Leipzig on Wednesday night (1-0) and will miss the match against Eintracht. Gnabry went off injured on 28 minutes.

The record champions will also have to manage without Renato Sanches. The Portugal international was shown a second yellow card in the hectic closing stages and now serves a one-match ban. In addition to the duo, FC Bayern are also without the services of Arjen Robben (thigh), James (knee) and World Cup winner Corentin Tolisso (cruciate).

The trio of Franck Ribery, Kingsley Coman, and Thomas Muller are the likely candidates to help provide coverage on the wing in Gnabry’s absence as Bayern prepares for a key match against a very tough Eintracht Frankfurt side.
