Despite being in incredible form in recent weeks, Serge Gnabry is going to be unavailable for Germany’s match today against Estonia. According to Bild, Gnabry is out today due to “muscular problems.” Unfortunately, no further details are available at this time.
Gnabry picked up a goal and an assist in Germany’s 2-2 draw with Argentina on October 9, so he was coming into today’s important match for Germany in a near-irreplaceable form at a time where they can’t afford to not take all three points.
Bitterer Ausfall für Jogi Löw und das @DFB_Team: Serge Gnabry muss nach @SPORTBILD-Infos heute wegen muskulärer Probleme gegen Estland passen. #dfb #gnabry #fcbayern @BILD_Sport @BILD_Bayern— Tobias Altschäffl (@altobelli13) October 13, 2019
What will Jogi Löw do now that Gnabry is out? It’s likely that he’ll just turn the keys to the attack over to Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus. Everyone know what Reus can do on the big stage, so it only make sense for Löw to turn to him.
At this time, it’s not known whether or not Gnabry will be available for Bayern Munich’s match this weekend against Augsburg as the club’s return to Bundesliga action.
Update: Gnabry out as precautionary measure
The DFB has released the following statement after word of Gnabry’s injury spread:

It sounds as if his muscular problem is not serious.
