Alaba has been diagnosed with a capsular tear in his left knee after coming off in the 17th minute of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Mainz.

Bayern failed to bounce back from their Champions League exit as they are held at home by Mainz.

"We are ready. Tomorrow is a big game for us", Ancelotti said.

'Philipp is an example to follow and is very important for the team. I love his professional attitude.

"I try every day to convince him to continue, asking if he has changed his mind - until now he hasn't".

"I can only hope he ends his career in the best way possible".

"If he carries on, we'll change his position to midfield so he doesn't have to run as much".

"The games against Real Madrid had cost a lot of energy", he said.

Carlo Ancelotti has slammed Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery for his recent performances and has warned the Frenchman he faces being axed for their cup clash with Borussia Dortmund.

Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko Carlo Ancelotti said during his remarks that the trio Mats Humlez, Jerome Boateng and Khafy Martinez were very ready for the match, but it was hard for him to choose between the trio to fill two positions in his core form for the Dortmund encounter.

"Reus has now scored twice in the league since his return and he also scored against Monaco", Tuchel stated at a news conference.

"Everyone speaks about atmosphere in the final. I want to experience it myself and don't want to simply be a spectator", he said.

The Bayern Munich coach showed great respect for Borussia Dortmund's Emeric Obamyang, but stressed that Polish striker Robert Levandovski was a "stunning" striker.
