Franck Ribery: Strained ankle ligament

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

And a statement on the Bundesliga leaders' website confirmed Ribery will play no part at the Allianz Arena this week.

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.
