Beaten 3 goals to 2 at the Allianz Arena by PSG on Wednesday night, Bayern Munich will try to reverse the trend on April 13 at the Parc des Princes. But bad news is already piling up for Bavarian coach Hansi Flick with one week to go.
Two Bayern players absent for the return against PSG
During the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League, two players of Bayern Munich joined the infirmary. First, at the 33rd minute Leon Goretzka, due to a thigh strain, gave up his place to Alphonso Davies. According to Bild, the German midfielder should miss several weeks of competition. Even if the Bavarian club has not yet communicated on the unavailability of its 26-year-old player, everything suggests that he will not be part of Hansi Flick‘s group for the return match against Paris Saint-Germain.
The chances of Goretzka recovering from such an injury in six days are very small, according to the local media. Niklas Süle left the field in the 42nd minute with a muscle injury. Replaced by Jerome Boateng, the 25-year-old central defender should also miss the trip to Paris according to information relayed this Thursday by RMC. This hecatomb of injuries at Bayern Munich could be good news for Paris SG for next Wednesday’s game.
A Bayern totally reduced against PSG?
Already without Robert Lewandowski (knee), Serge Gnabry (Covid-19), Corentin Tolisso and Douglas Costa (foot) for the first leg, Hansi Flick could also do without the services of Niklas Süle and Leon Goretzka in a week. Obliged to beat PSG, which could well count on the return of all its injured, at the Parc des Princes, the coach of the German club is now crossing his fingers and waiting for the final diagnosis.
