Bayern Munich have confirmed that Bastian Schweinsteiger picked up a knee injury during their Bundesliga win over Stuttgart on Saturday - but say he could yet feature in the DFB-Pokal final.

The Germany international was withdrawn against his side's southern rivals after just 37 minutes, prompting fears he could miss next weekend's cup clash with Dortmund in Berlin - and even the World Cup.

However, the Bavarians have now confirmed that the midfielder has not suffered any serious injury and could return at the Olympiastadion on Saturday.

The 29-year-old underwent tests in the wake of the match with club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt and it was revealed that he only sustained slight irritation to the left kneecap.

He will begin training on his own and the club's medical staff will decide on a day-to-day basis how much htey can up his workload before making a final decision of his participation in Saturday's showdown with BVB.

Bayern and Dortmund kick off in the German capital at 20:00CET.
