Ribery and Robben out of Stuttgart clash

Neither Franck Ribery (l.) nor Arjen Robben (r.) will feature in FC Bayern's game away to VfB Stuttgart on Wednesday

Munich - FC Bayern München wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben will both sit out their side's trip to VfB Stuttgart on Wednesday through injury.

The encounter is the rescheduled Matchday 17 fixture that was postponed because of the Bavarians' commitments at the FIFA Club World Cup in December.

Ribery, who also missed Bayern's 2-0 win in Gladbach last Friday, is still beset with muscular problems, while Robben, who made a late appearance as a substitute in that match, is still recovering from knee surgery. Mario Mandzukic is set to return to the matchday squad, but it is still too soon for Holger Badstuber, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Daniel van Buyten und Javi Martinez to appear.
