"It will be tough and we need to win to keep the pressure on Borussia Dortmund".

The Colombian midfielder has started just five times in the Bundesliga this term, as he has struggled with a knee injury that has kept him sidelined since Novermber.

"I have to admit the injury to Kingsley Coman hit us hard", said Kovac.

However, in an interview with Bild (via Metro), Salihamidzic insisted that Bayern will use the last six months of the season to decide whether they want to sign Rodriguez permanently or not.

"That's very important and because Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery won't be able to play, I expect him to take over and bring his skills".
