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.”

Alaba scored a penalty and had an assist as Austria narrowly beat Moldova 2-1 Thursday in European Championship Qualifying Group G.

Unlike in appearances for Bayern, Alaba started further upfield as a defensive midfielder and continued his excellent start to the season with a fine performance. Alaba converted a penalty after 14 minutes and then helped Austria re-gain the lead by assisting Marc Janko from a corner. Alaba also nearly scored a second in the first half but his free-kick was denied by Moldovan goalkeeper Ilie Sebanu. A vital player for both club and country, Alaba will surely play a key part again when Austria host Montenegro at the weekend.
