Bayern Munich full-back Philipp Lahm could miss up to a month due to a strained knee.

The Germany international picked up the injury while on duty for the national team at the start of the month and now risks missing crucial games for both club and country.

He has already missed Bayern Munich´s last two Bundesliga games and their UEFA Cup debut against Belenenses and has been told to rest for another fortnight without putting any strain on the knee, according to Kicker magazine.
