Today FC Bayern welcomes Benfica Lisbon to the fifth matchday of the Champions League (20.45 in the LIVETICKER). Here you can find out how the Bavarians could approach the game in terms of personnel.
Coach Niko Kovac will once again have to do without a few key players who are still injured.
The drop-out list of the Bavarians is getting bigger and bigger. Before the game, Mats Hummels also called in sick at short notice. He suffers from a gastrointestinal infection. Serge Gnabry has not yet recovered from his adductor problems.
Corentin Tolisso, Kingsley Coman, James Rodriguez and Thiago are still missing.
“It is unfortunately part of our current situation that we have had to accept many injuries from many important players. We are very shaken at the moment and have to get along with what we have,” coach Niko Kovac commented on the current situation.
