While Paris waits to learn more about Marquinhos’ injury, Bayern Munich have almost lost two new players for the return leg.
For this shock of the quarter-finals of the Champions League between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, the capital club is not the only one to have to deplore injuries. His Bavarian opponent is indeed not spoiled either. Hit in the right knee, Robert Lewandowski could not compete in the first leg. However, some believed in the miracle for the second leg. But yesterday, even before the match kicked off at the Allianz Arena, the Polish striker extinguished any hope of seeing him in a week at the Parc des Princes.
“No, no, it’s too early. When I feel good, when I am sure, I will come back », he declared at the microphone of Sky Germany. A heavy handicap to which came the last minute package of his official replacement, Serge Gnabry. Absent from training the day before the game, the player tested positive for covid-19. Forced to observe a septaine, the former Arsenal resident will not be in the game in Paris either.
Süle announced package, almost no more hopes for Goretzka
Unfortunately for Hansi Flick and the Bayern supporters, two other elements should bring the number of notable absentees at the Park to four according to Bild. Released in the 33rd minute and replaced by Alphonso Davies, Leon Goretzka suffers from a thigh injury. For his part, Niklas Süle, who had to leave in the 42nd minute, suffered a tear in a muscle fiber.
According to the German daily, Goretzka and Süle are almost withdrawn for the return leg. Süle’s downtime would even be two to three weeks. RMC Sport also confirms that the defender will be absent. Now all that remains is to wait for Bayern’s official diagnosis, but Hansi Flick is worried.
