Bavaria also lacks Thiago in Leverkusen
Before the away game at Bayer Leverkusen, FC Bayern has to lament the next short-term loss.
As the Munich team announced on Saturday morning, midfield director Thiago also stayed in the Bavarian capital and did not travel to Leverkusen, where the record champion will meet Bayer 04 in the afternoon (3.30 pm, LIVE! at kicker.de).
Due to muscular problems, the Spaniard had only been able to participate in training to a limited extent, “an assignment in Leverkusen came too early,” the FCB said.
After Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Manuel Neuer, who had to cancel on Friday because of a injury on the right hand, Thiago is already the fourth retirement in Niko Kovac’s team.
Lukas Mai and 17-year-old Joshua Zirkzee take a seat on the bench instead. Christian Früchtl will be the substitute goalkeeper for Sven Ulreich.
