Bayern Munich ace David Alaba avoids serious knee injury

David Alaba "suffered a badly bruised knee" in the DFL Supercup win against Eintracht Frankfurt, but did not damage his ligaments.

Bayern Munich have revealed that David Alaba did not suffer ligament damage during Sunday evening's DFL Supercup meeting with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 26-year-old hobbled off the field during the closing stages of his side's 5-0 thumping at the Commerzbank Arena following a challenge with Danny da Costa.

There had been fears that Alaba was facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines, but medical tests on Monday morning suggest that the versatile full-back avoided any serious damage.

A Bayern statement read: "Alaba suffered a badly bruised knee in last night's Supercup win, and has not sustained any ligament damage."

Alaba will be monitored on a daily basis ahead of the 2018-19 Bundesliga campaign, which begins with a home match against Hoffenheim on August 24.
