Javi Martinez has been out and Bayern Munich have not given him a timeline "for the foreseeable future" after sustaining a thigh injury during Bayern Munich's draw against RB Leipzig on Saturday.

Bayern

's midfielder played for just 25 minutes at the Allianz Arena and was substituted by Jamal Musiala, who netted

Bayern

's first goal in a breathtaking game that ended 3-3.

Martinez

most likely is out of the Champions League meeting with Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday, 

However, the powerful champions have already secured their place top of Group A.

A

Bayern

statement read: "

Bayern will be without Javi Martinez for the foreseeable future. The Spain international suffered a muscle injury to his left thigh in the Bundesliga top-of-the-table clash against RB Leipzig on Saturday. The diagnosis was confirmed after an examination by the German record champions' medical unit.

"

The Midfielder's future in

Bayern

is unclear as his deal ends at the end of the campaign.

Martinez

has just been in 24 Bundesliga plays since the start of last season – nine of them have come as part of the starting line-up.

During this period of time,

Bayern Munich

have averaged fewer goals scored (2.7 to 3.5) and more conceded (1.3 to 0.9) when

Martinez

is in the game. They also handled fewer shots (16.5 to 18.8) and allow the opposition more (10.4 to 8.5) when he's featured.

However, their victory percentage is still the same at 75 percent whether the 32-year-old plays or not.
