The France winger strained ligaments in his left ankle on Saturday during Bayern's 11th straight win - a 3-2 success against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Bayern have a 3-1 advantage from the first leg, meaning Arsenal must score at least three times to deny their hosts a place in the quarter-finals.

No side has managed that this season against Jupp Heynckes' team, though the manager must also do without the suspended Jerome Boateng and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

And Arjen Robben, a natural replacement for Ribery, was missing at the weekend with a calf problem.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
