Bayern pair banned

BERLIN: Bayern Munich will be without banned pair Daniel van Buyten and Thomas Mueller for next Tuesday's Champions League group stage match against French side Bordeaux in Munich. The pair are banned after picking up red cards in last week's group stage match. Bayern's rising star Mueller was sent off after just 30 minutes of the 2-1 defeat in Bordeaux for a second yellow card, while Belgium's van Buyten, 31, was shown a straight red for hauling down Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh. Bordeaux are currently top of Group A with Juventus second in the table while Bayern are third.
