Injury update: Alaba back in training, Vidal doubtful for Sevilla

New, comments

Bayern may be without some stars on Wednesday, but coach Jupp Heynckes should still be able to field a dominant team.

After demolishing Augsburg and clinching Bayern Munich’s sixth consecutive Bundesliga title, Jupp Heynckes granted some of his most reliable players a day off, while others work on their returns from injury (FCBayern.com). Arjen Robben, Jérôme Boateng, Joshua Kimmich, and Rafinha—all of whom with the exception of 34-year-old Robben played the full 90 minutes—were given Monday off to recover.

Arturo Vidal missed Monday’s training session on account of the knee injury he suffered in Augsburg. He will almost certainly be unavailable for Wednesday. Having scored Bayern’s fourth goal on Saturday, Sandro Wagner trained individually today, but he is unlikely to start on Wednesday regardless.

Coman arrived to Bayern’s championship part wearing a smile and crazy pants. The fleet-footed winger remains shackled to his crutches for now, unfortunately. Manuel Neuer also continued his goalie training on a separate pitch, and David Alaba rejoined team training after missing Saturday’s match on account of back pain.

Last but not least, according to Bild—apparently their print editionJerome Boateng is also doubtful for the match on Wednesday. He reportedly felt pain in his foot and left Augsburg with a limp. His absence, however, is less pressing, since Mats Hummels was fully rested and Niklas Süle can switch to Boateng’s side.
