During the international break, Bayern were often unlucky with injuries, and a Munich defensive player had to be replaced.
MUNICH – This crucial week for Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann comes ahead of the week with games against RB Leipzig and FC Barcelona. During the international break, the record champion*’s field hospital continued to fill with injuries from Thomas Muller, Corentin Tolisso and Dayot Upamecano. Now another Bayern professional had to turn when he was on a mission for his national team.
FC Bayern: maybe the hospital is expanding – Nagelsmann worries about trend-setting games
Canada’s Alfonso Davies* had to break preparation for the Gold Cup in early July and traveled to Munich to recover from an ankle injury*. The defensive man missed parts of the preparation under Nagelsmann. Now the left-back had to face the same fate. In his team’s 1-1 draw in the World Cup qualifier against neighboring America, the 20-year-old had to change again.
During the game in Nashville/Tennessee, Davis won with a distinctive action to the left after an hour and was drawn with a precise pass by his teammate Pyl Larin to seal a 1–1 draw. After only a quarter of an hour, Davies had to be replaced, with a FC Bayern* professional turning his left knee painfully along his face during treatment. Eventually, he left the field of play unaided, and the injury he suffered was initially undiagnosed.
FC Bayern: Davies’ Canadians want to go to World Cup – does Nagelsmann have to massively rebuild his defense?
In a duel between two North American teams, the Canadians, who were able to qualify for the World Cup final, won another point. In the group of eight of World Cup qualification, Davis & Co. are third with two points from two matches with the United States. With the first three teams taking 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 matches left.
Davis’ condition following his injury will probably keep his coach busy for the next few days. Because Nagelsmann* is due to return to his old home on Saturday, in the top game in Leipzig, the 34-year-old has to rebuild his defense again with an injury to Dayat Upamecano. Another failure could further destabilize the Munich defence. (ajr) * tz.de is an offer ippn.media
