Bayern’s Kroos sidelined by groin injury

Updated: April 3, 2013

Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos is
expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks because of a groin injury suffered in
Bayern’s 2-0 Champions League triumph over Juventus on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old picked up the injury only 13 minutes into the match, and team
doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller Wohlfahrt confirmed the timetable of 6-8 weeks for
the return of Kroos after tests.

In 24 Bundesliga matches this season Kroos has netted six goals and assisted
on eight more, but he won’t be able to contribute much the rest of the way as
Bayern looks to become the first German side to win the treble.

The club can clinch the Bundesliga crown this weekend with a win against
Eintracht, while the Bavarians have reached the semifinals of the German Cup
in addition to the last eight in the Champions League.
