Bayern Munich's lengthy injury list got worse in midweek when Robert Lewandowski, Mehdi Benatia and Xabi Alonso all picked up knocks against SC Freiburg as reported by Vavel.

They play their final Bundesliga game before the winter break against Mainz on Friday night, and the time off can't come quick enough for Pep Guardiola's men. 

Such is their injury list, you could put together one of the best team's in Europe just with players who are currently out injured.

How formidable does this Bayern injured XI look to you?

Thankfully for Bayern, their strength in depth still means they will be able to field a quality side at Mainz and they are massive odds-on favourites to make it 14 wins from 17 Bundesliga games this season on Friday.

It also helps that they are 11 points clear at the top of the table, if any unfortunate slip-up should occur.
