The Spaniard suffered heavy bruising to his ribs away to FC Ingolstadt 04 on Matchday 33, and did not feature in the club's final Bundesliga game of the season, a 3-1 victory at home to Hannover 96.

"I'm not sure if I'll be okay by Saturday," the 34-year-old told "I still need a bit of time to get better. But we've got another three days and I hope I can recover quickly."

Alonso played in 26 of Bayern's Bundesliga matches en route to a record fourth successive title, and was in the starting line-up for the last four rounds of the DFB Cup, memorably helping the Bavarians get past SV Darmstadt 98 in the last 16 with a stunning long-range effort in a 1-0 win.
