FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Eintracht Frankfurt forward Alexander Meier, the Bundesliga's leading goalscorer, is out for the season with a knee injury.
The club says Meier will have surgery on his patellar tendon on Tuesday.
Meier tops the Bundesliga with 19 goals, ahead of the Bayern Munich duo of Arjen Robben (17) and Robert Lewandowski (16).
Robben is also out with an injury and Lewandowski could win the scorers' title for the second year running. The Poland striker topped last season's scoring list with 20 goals, while still with Borussia Dortmund.
