Goetze, Martinez, Robben join Bayern's injured list
Bayern Munich have returned from their UEFA Super Cup final win over Chelsea with Mario Goetze, Arjen Robben and Javi Martinez joining Bastian Schweinsteiger on the casualty list, the club said Sunday.
Champions League-winners Bayern beat Europa League title-holders Chelsea 5-4 in a penalty shoot-out on Friday, following a 2-2 draw, but the Bavarians arrived home with a growing list of walking wounded.
Vice captain Schweinsteiger had been ruled out of the Prague showdown with a sprained right ankle and will also miss Germany's forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Austria in Munich on Friday and Faroe Islands on September 10.
Dutch winger Robben will miss at least the next three days of training with a knee strain, while Spain's Martinez, who scored the dramatic 121st-minute equaliser in Prague to take the game to penalties, will miss most of next week with the same injury, Bayern said on their website.
Both Robben and Martinez should be fit for Bayern's next Bundesliga match at Hanover 96 on September 14.
Goetze, 21, who cost 37 million euros ($49 million) from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund, faces the longest lay-off after tearing a ligament in his right ankle.
He is expected to be out for at least the next three weeks having returned from Prague in a plaster cast.
The cast will be removed after a week and he will then spend up to two weeks in rehabilitation before returning to training, Bayern said.
