Publish date:

BERLIN (Reuters) -- Winger Arjen Robben will miss Bayern Munich's Champions League Group A match against Spain's Villarreal on Wednesday because he has not yet recovered from a groin injury, the club said on Monday.

The winger has been nursing the injury since the end of August and has missed the last two league games, including Saturday's 7-0 demolition of Freiburg.

"He is still feeling the effect of his injury which will not allow him to play against Villarreal," the club said after coach Jupp Heynckes named the same squad as for the Freiburg win.

The Champions League final will be held in Munich on May 19 next year.
