Bayern Munich forward Serge Gnabry tore a thigh muscle during the Club World Cup final and will be out for the foreseeable, the team said Friday.

Gnabry played 64 minutes in Bayern’s 1-0 win over Mexican club Tigres on Thursday in Qatar. Bayern said he was later examined by the club’s medical staff and found to have torn a muscle in his left thigh.

Gnabry has scored six goals in 28 games for Bayern in all competitions this season and missed only four games.

Bayern is also without midfielder Thomas Muller, who tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of the final. Muller is facing a period of quarantine when he arrives back in Munich.
