Bayern lose stricken Görlitz

FC Bayern München defender Andreas Görlitz is out for up to six months after sustaining a cruciate ligament injury.
FC Bayern München will be without Andreas Görlitz for up to six months after the defender suffered cruciate ligament damage in last night's 1-0 home defeat by Juventus FC.

Worst fears confirmed
Görlitz, who came on as a half-time substitute, had to be taken off after 69 minutes. The 22-year-old was attended to immediately by Bayern's medical staff and their worst fears were confirmed as scans revealed he had torn a cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Summer signing
Görlitz, a German international, has played seven Bundesliga matches and two Champions League ties for Bayern this season after joining from local rivals TSV 1860 München in the summer.
