The 24-year-old scored twice in Bayern's 4-0 victory at Hannover on Sunday but was withdrawn after an hour, with medical tests subsequently revealing a hamstring pull in his right thigh.

In a statement published on fcbayern.de, club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt announced Muller would take a "mandatory five-day break" and ruled him out of Saturday's Bundesliga game with Schalke.
