Bayern Suffer Another Injury Blow Ahead UCL Clash With Arsenal

France international Kingsley Coman has added to Bayern Munich’s injury woes ahead of the Champions League return leg against Arsenal.

Bayern welcome the Gunners to the Allianz Arena next Wednesday with the scores level at 2-2 heading into the quarter-final second leg.

The Bavarians are already without former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry, who suffered a hamstring knock on his return to the Emirates.

And they will also miss left-back Alphonso Davies due to suspension following his yellow card in north London.

Coman is now set for a spell on the sidelines after he went off in the second half during Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Cologne.

The 27-year-old appeared to pick up a knee problem, leading to him being replaced by Jamal Musiala shortly after the break.

He hobbled off the pitch where he had to be supported by Bayern medics either side of him.

Bayern had even omitted Leroy Sane from their squad to face Cologne, with Tuchel keen to maintain his fitness.

It was the same situation for goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, with the pair only returning from injury midweek in the European Cup.

Should Coman be ruled out against Arsenal, it is likely that Musiala and Sane will be deployed on the wings, with Harry Kane leading the line.
