LIPPSTADT, Germany (AP) Bayern Munich barely won and lost winger Arjen Robben to injury in Carlo Ancelotti’s debut as coach on Saturday.

Bayern won 4-3 against the fifth-tier Lippstadt club, on goals from Julian Green, Robben, Franck Ribery, and an own goal from the home side.

A couple of minutes after scoring in the 33rd minute, Robben limped off with a groin injury. Robben will be out for about six weeks with an injury to the right adductor muscle and could miss the start of the Bundesliga season on Aug. 26.

Robben went through a series of injury problems last season and his last official match for Bayern was in early March.
