David Alaba    D    Bayern Munich
Alaba has been ruled out for seven weeks after he damaged medial ligaments in his left knee Wednesday during Austria's friendly game with Bosnia, Bundesliga.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Alaba has been a key man for Bayern all season but may now be out for the rest of the campaign. However the defender said that "I have one main goal: I want to be back for the finale this season. I’ll make sure I recover completely and then I’ll go for it in rehab.”
Oliver Kirch    M    Borussia Dortmund
Kirch will be out for two to three weeks after pulling a tendon in his left knee in training, BVB.de reports.

Hakan Calhanoglu    M    Bayer Leverkusen
Calhanoglu's late goal spared Turkey's blushes as they recorded a 2-1 win over minnows Luxembourg in an international friendly Tuesday.

Kevin de Bruyne    M    VfL Wolfsburg
Reports suggest that Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain met with De Bruyne's representatives as the team continues to work on a potential transfer move for the midfielder, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

While Wolfsburg would like to keep De Bruyne for another season, the checkbooks of Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint Germain could be too much to resist. The midfielder has attracted attention from each of those clubs, and could prove to be an interesting transfer storyline this summer.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan    M    Borussia Dortmund
Mkhitaryan got an assist Sunday as Armenia fell to a 2-1 away defeat to Albania in European Qualifying Group I.

Fantasy Analysis

While a key man for Dortmund, Mkhitaryan is even more vital for his country. He showed that as early as the fourth minute when he teed up Spartak Moscow player Yura Movsisyan for the game's first goal. Armenia could not hold on however and buckled to two late goals.
Mario Gotze    M    Bayern Munich
Gotze got an assist as Germany defeated Georgia 2-0 Sunday in European Championship Qualifying Group D.
