Alaba was a key man in defense Tuesday as Bayern Munich drew 0-0 with Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League second round.

Alaba kept a third consecutive clean sheet, after having not conceded in Bayern's last two Bundesliga games. He was a vital part of his team's defense, making some crucial blocks and looking composed throughout. The Bayern backline was so solid that they only let in one shot all game.

Alaba was diagnosed with a partial MCL tear and a medial meniscus injury Thursday and he will miss several weeks.

Alaba suffered the injury late in Wednesday's Champions League match against Roma, a match he picked up an assist in, and he'll likely be replaced in the starting XI by Juan Bernat.

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.

Alaba, who suffered a knee injury during training in Qatar on Sunday, should be fit for Bayern Munich's Bundesliga match against Borussia Monchengladbach, Bundesliga.com reports.

Alaba was briefly Bayern's penalty taker this season, but after a key miss, he was replaced by Thomas Muller, who had the job before him. The defender is a very important part of the Bayern defense, although his fantasy prospects are a bit limited to his clean sheet ability these days.
