MUNICH, Germany -- Bayern Munich and Switzerland midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri will be out for about six weeks with a hamstring injury.

The Champions League winner says Shaqiri tore a muscle in his right hamstring during Switzerland's 2-1 victory over Albania that qualified the Swiss for next year's World Cup in Brazil.

Shaqiri received treatment in the first half of that game but continued to play and scored the first goal before being substituted.

Bayern's list of long-term injured include midfielders Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez and defender Holger Badstuber. Martinez is expected to return to training shortly.

Bayern is leading the Bundesliga as it seeks to defend the three titles it won last season -- the national championship, the German Cup and the Champions League.
