Gomez started Sunday's Serie A match against Juventus, his first start in league play since September 15 against Cagliari.

Gomez lasted 76 minutes but managed to take only one shot. He has been slowly working his way back from a knee injury, and he will be heavily relied upon until Giuseppe Rossi can return from his own knee issues.

The former German Footballer of the Year is "not expected back soon," Football Italia reports.

Gomez was a major acquisition made by Fiorentina last July. However, he hasn't had much of a chance to flex his muscle in Serie A due to an injured knee. It appears that he will be out at least until Fiorentina's matchup against Bologna.

Gomez scored in the 41st minute and then added another goal from the spot four minutes into extra time in the second half of Sunday's 5-2 win over Genoa.

Gomez also recorded an assist in the match, his first scoring outputs this year for Fiorentina. He's been a dream so far for the Italian club, which brought him over this summer from Bayern Munich fresh off a Champions League crown.

Gomez sustained an ankle injury that will require surgery, Goal.com reports.

Gomez injured his ankle just before halftime in Bayern Munich's Liga Total! Cup semifinal defeat to Werder Bremen on Saturday. After being stretchered off, it was determined that the striker would need surgery to remove loose fragments in his ankle. Speaking on the matter, Bayern's sporting director conceded, "He is not good. He needs surgery. Then we'll see how long he's out for." This is a big blow to an already injured Bayern side and it seems unlikely that Gomez will be ready for the start of their Bundesliga season on August 25th.

Bayern striker, Mario Gomez, netted his first Bundesliga goal this weekend against Hannover 96. Not only did Gomez record his first score of the 2010-2011 campaign, but he added two more goals to his sheet. His hat-trick was the difference in Bayern Munich's 3-0 victory over Hannover.

Gomez should get significant time at striker with injuries to Klose, Ribery and Robben. The Bayern forward was one of the most costly transfers this year from VFB Stuttgart at $30 million euros. Expect Gomez on the starting eleven this week for Champions League action.
