The Dutchman has been a regular this season, playing in 11 of Bayern's 12 Bundesliga matches, but he will be missing for what is sure to be a tricky encounter against the fourth-placed side.

Both Robben and Thiago Alcantara - who Bayern fear suffered a "serious" thigh injury in the same match - have returned to Munich, whereas the rest of the squad travelled straight to Monchengladbach.

Bayern has not offered any extra detail as to how long it expects Robben to be out for, but it will be hopeful he is back well before the Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain on December 5.
