Bayern Munich's injury list keeps on growing prior to their Uefa Champions League trip to Lyon, with Argentine Martin Demichelis now likely to miss the match.

Wing backs Tobias Rau and Willy Sagnol did not travel to France, Owen Hargreaves, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mehmet Scholl will also miss the match.

Claudio Pizarro will also miss the match through suspension after his sending off in the 1-1 draw at Anderlecht.

Demichelis has picked up an ankle injury, leaving manager Ottmar Hitzfeld seriously short of options.

"He's doubtful and all we can do is to sit and wait to see how the situation develops," said Hitzfeld.

The Bundesliga side will have Oliver Kahn though, after he played a full 90 minutes in Bayern's 0-0 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach.
