Stoke's Bojan Krkic sets a new Spanish record against Bayern Munich

Stoke's Bojan Krkic sets a new Spanish record against Bayern Munich

Carlo Ancelotti says Bayern Munich are holding their breath over David Alaba for Wednesday's German Cup semi-final against Borussia Dortmund after the Austria worldwide injured his knee.

Franck Ribery set up Arjen Robben to restore parity, but Bayern shot itself in the foot before the break, Daniel Brosinski converting from the penalty spot for Mainz after Joshua Kimmich's foul on Yoshinori Muto.

Defending champions Bayern extended their advantage to nine points but, with their nearest rivals having a match in hand at Schalke on Sunday, and five games still to play, the mathematical possibility of catching them has improved slightly.

The Stoke forward, now on loan at Mainz, scored his first Bundesliga goal in the 2-2 draw at Bayern Munich on Saturday.

"We made far too many mistakes in the first half", said Bayern keeper Sven Ulreich, who will replace injured Manuel Neuer until the end of the season.

"However, the most important thing is that we got a point and the fact that my first goal came against a great side like Bayern at a fantastic stadium like the Allianz Arena".

Carroll is struggling with a recurrence of a groin problem so Bilic will assess Sakho's fitness. Though if supporting Everton has taught me anything it is to expect the unexpected.

"We didn't play well today".

Alaba switched from left-back to central defence, but limped off after just 16 minutes of Bayern's 2-2 draw at home to Mainz on Saturday and Ancelotti is waiting to see the extent of the injury. We should have done it better.

But Aubameyang came on for Reus to slot home from a tight angle before Guerreiro's superb late header sealed the win as Dortmund moved above four-placed Hoffenheim, who drew 1-1 at Cologne on Friday.

Last-place Darmstadt dealt a blow to Hamburger SV's survival hopes by beating its fellow struggler 2-1.

The 2009 Bundesliga champions and 2015 German Cup winners are just one point from the bottom three.
