Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Bay­ern Mu­nich winger Ar­jen Robben will miss the show­down at Borus­sia Dort­mund to­day in one of the most an­tic­i­pated Bun­desliga matches of the sea­son. Robben was pulled off at halftime of the Nether­lands' World Cup qual­i­fier against Lux­em­bourg on Sun­day, af­ter scor­ing in a 3-1 win. He re­port­edly had a mi­nor cramp, and was re­placed as a pre­cau­tion­ary move. But Robben has not prac­ticed with Bay­ern this week. Coach Carlo Ancelotti said yes­ter­day he won't be “tak­ing any risks” with Ar­turo Vi­dal and Dou­glas Costa af­ter their na­tional team duty, and will see how they train. Javi Martinez and Kings­ley Co­man re­main on long-term in­jury list. Dort­mund for­ward Marco Reus has been set back by a “small heel prob­lem” and will not play ei­ther. He's been out since May with a groin in­jury.
