During the international break, Bayern are often unlucky with injuries, and a defensive player from Munich had to be substituted.
Munich – For Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann, this comes before the important week of matches between RB Leipzig and Barcelona. During the international break, the field hospital for record champions* continued to fill in the injuries of Thomas Muller, Corentin Tolisso and Dayot Opicano. Now he had to replace another professional at Bayern when he was on assignment with his country.
FC Bayern: Hospital likely to expand – Nagelsmann worried about direction-finding games
Canadian Alfonso Davies* had to cut short his Gold Cup preparations at the beginning of July, and traveled to Munich to heal his ankle injury*. The defending man missed parts of the preparations under Nagelsmann. Now the left-back has suffered the same fate. In a 1-1 draw with his side in a World Cup qualifier against neighboring USA, the 20-year-old had to be substituted again.
During the game in Nashville / Tennessee, Davis won an hour later with a typical left-hand move and prepared with a minute pass for a 1-1 draw by teammate Kyle Larrain. After just a quarter of an hour, Davies had to be replaced, and during treatment the Bayern* professional grabbed his left knee with his face contorted in pain. After all, he left the field of play without help, and at first there was no diagnosis of the injury he had.
FC Bayern: Kendio Davies want to go to the World Cup – should Nagelsmann rebuild his defence intensively?
In the duel between the two teams in North America, the Canadians, who managed to qualify for the World Cup finals, won another point. In the Group of Eight World Cup qualifiers, Davis & Co. finished third with two points from two games, equal in points with the United States. The top three teams take part in the controversial Winter World Cup in Qatar*; Mexico is currently in first place with six points from two matches. However, there are still twelve games to play.
Davies’ condition after his injury is likely to keep his coach busy over the next few days. Because Nagelsmann* is due to return to his old home on Saturday, in the first game in Leipzig, the 34-year-old has to rebuild his defense once again due to an injury to Dayot Uppicano. Another failure could destabilize Munich’s defense. (ajr) * tz.de is a display from IPPEN.MEDIA
