Bayern Munich’s most in-form player, Kingsley Coman, suffered an apparent leg injury in the Bundesliga’s top match on Saturday, featuring first-place Bayer Leverkusen versus the Rekordmeister in second.
Coman started for Bayern at right wing and played just over half an hour before injuring his left leg in a minor collision with his compatriot and French teammate Moussa Diaba, who can be seen checking on Coman below:

Coman may have pulled his left hamstring, which the medics could be seen inspecting on the sidelines after he left the pitch. Coman was replaced by Leroy Sané.
The loss of Coman, who has 2 goals and 7 assists in the Bundesliga this year (and another 3 goals and 2 assists in the Champions League), is a heavy blow for Bayern, which is already stretched very thin in midfield on account of sundry injuries.
If there is good news, it is that the injury appeared to be relatively slight. Coman left the pitch under his own power and did not disappear down the tunnel, but was able to continue receiving treatment on the bench.
