Bayern Munich's midfield took another hit as it was announced on Monday that Anatoliy Tymoschuk will be suspended for the club's next three games.

The Ukraine international was shown a straight red card in stoppage time of Sunday's 2-1 win at Augsburg, which moved Bayern five points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table.

The suspension comes at a bad time for Bayern with fellow midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger set to miss the next six weeks with a broken collarbone and the club facing second-place Borussia Dortmund in its next match on November 19.

Tymoschuk has appeared in eight league matches for Bayern this season, including seven starts.
