Another blow for Bayern Munich! Leroy Sané was injured in training and could miss the knockout round of the Champions League against PSG.
We know the legend of Paris Saint-Germain on the injuries of his major players before the big Champions League matches. But this season, Bayern Munich are clearly not bad either. It is also the turn of Leroy Sané to join the infirmary of the German club.
The former Manchester City player injured his ankle in training on Wednesday. According to Bild, his participation in the round of 16 second leg of C1 against PSG, next Wednesday, would thus be called into question. It would inevitably be a blow for Bayern, since Leroy Sané is an important element of Julian Nagelsmann’s device. The German international started in the first leg at the Parc des Princes, won by his team (0-1). He had played 89 minutes.
Leroy Sané’s package would be added to those of Manuel Neuer and Lucas Hernandez, seriously injured and absent until the end of the season. Noussair Mazraoui has still not played since suffering heart complications after contracting Covid-19 during the World Cup, but returned to training at the end of last week. On the other hand, Sadio Mané resumed competition on Sunday against Union Berlin (3-0), almost four months after his knee injury.
On the Parisian side, three players are currently injured. Neymar, who should miss this trip to Munich after his ankle sprain, Renato Sanches, and Presnel Kimpembe, victim of a ruptured Achilles tendon on Sunday in Marseille. Hit in the thigh before the first leg, and forced to play only part of the game, Kylian Mbappé came back in good shape.
