Klose and Van Bommel miss visit of CFR

Miroslav Klose and Mark van Bommel will sit out FC Bayern München's Group E home meeting with CFR 1907 Cluj next week after returning from international duty with injuries.

FC Bayern München will take on CFR 1907 Cluj in the UEFA Champions League next Tuesday without injured duo Miroslav Klose and Mark van Bommel while Ivica Olić is a doubt.

Centre-forward Klose tore muscle fibres in his left thigh shortly after opening the scoring for Germany in yesterday's 3-0 UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying success in Kazakhstan and is expected to be sidelined for ten days.

Van Bommel faces a similar lay-off due to ruptured tissue and bruising in his right knee. The midfielder sustained the injury during the Netherlands' win in Moldova on 8 October but still played 72 minutes of the Oranje's 4-1 victory over Sweden four days later.

Olić, meanwhile, has undergone surgery after fracturing his nose during Croatia's triumph in Israel on Saturday. The striker could feature against Hannover 96 at the weekend wearing a protective mask. Bayern are top of Group E with six points having defeated AS Roma and FC Basel 1893.
