Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman left their home match against Hertha Berlin after only 13 minutes with an apparent hamstring injury. The French attacker had only recently come on for his compatriot Franck Ribery, as Niko Kovac hoped to spark a somewhat inept attack.

It appears that the injury occurred in the buildup before Coman laid the ball off. He immediately grasped at his hamstring before going to ground. He made no attempt to continue on the advice of the medical staff and was subbed off for Thomas Müller, who appears for the first time since serving his suspension against Liverpool.
Non-contact injuries can at times be more severe, but it may have just been a precaution to avoid further damage to a tight hamstring muscle. Coman’s nightmarish injury record and long spell out this season with an ankle injury has all Bayern fans holding their breath. The immediate question is whether Coman’s ability to play in Bayern’s crucial second-leg match against Liverpool in the Champions League is in doubt.
