Pep Guardiola has conceded Bayern Munich are struggling to break down opponents without star wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.

The Bavarians have scored just once in their past three games in all competitions and needed penalties to defeat Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday for a spot in the DFB-Pokal semi-finals.

Robben was injured early in the first game of their current three-game dry spell while Ribery has not featured in over a month for Bayern, and Guardiola was open about the impact their absence is having.

“We are having a lot of problems,” the former Barcelona head coach told reporters. “We don’t have any others players for the one-on-one situations right now.

“We are a different team without Robben and Ribery fit, but we have to adapt to the current circumstances.”

Bayern are still 10 points clear of second-placed Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga and are back in action on Saturday when they host eighth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena.

Guardiola will then prepare for a Champions League quarter-final first leg visit to Porto, while they must defeat Borussia Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal semi-final on April 28 to keep their treble hopes alive.
