Berlin: Bayern Munich were dealt a blow Friday with news that Dutch winger Arjen Robben was suffering another leg injury that will see him miss this weekend's Bundesliga match and a Champions League outing to Valencia next week.

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes said the 28-year-old had a "small muscular injury" in his thigh, sustained during the Netherlands' 0-0 draw with Germany in a friendly on Wednesday.

Thomas Mueller will take Robben's place on the right flank for the Bavarians against Nuremburg on Saturday.

Robben, who has also played for former Chelsea and Real Madrid, made his Bundesliga return at the end of October after almost a month on the sidelines because of muscular problems in his thigh and back pain.
