MUNICH, Germany (AP) -- Bayern Munich's midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger could miss the German Cup quarterfinal against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday because of an ankle injury.

Schweinsteiger was injured in Bayern's 1-0 Bundesliga victory over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Bayern says a decision on whether Schweinsteiger can play in Leverkusen will be made on Tuesday.

The cup holder is already without wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben and midfielder David Alaba, as well as backup goalkeeper Tom Starke. But defender Holger Badstuber could return to the squad for Wednesday's match.
