Per a report from Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Bayern Munich has yet another injured player who will likely miss Saturday’s Bundesliga match against Union Berlin.

Lucas Hernandez is reportedly suffering from an issues with his abdominal muscles and joins Niklas Süle (muscle tear), Leon Goretzka (strain), Robert Lewandowski (knee injury), Dougle Costa (foot injury), Serge Gnabry (COVID-19), Corentin Tolisso (muscle tear), and Alphonso Davies (red card suspension) on the list of players who are unavailable tomorrow against Eisern Union:

In addition, Leroy Sane and Benjamin Pavard trained alone today, while Joshua Kimmich sat out. Those cases can be considered a precautionary measures from what we know at this point:

With Hernandez and Davies both unavailable, Bayern Munich manager Hansi might have to get very creative. David Alaba can slide into the left-back role or perhaps deep substitute Bouna Sarr will be able to shift over to the left-side? Regardless, Flick has very limited options without Süle, Hernandez, and Davies available.

Tanguy Nianzou, who has just one appearance under his belt this season, could absolutely find himself thrust into this game, as could fellow deep substitute Javi Martinez, who might have to fill-in at center-back or in the central midfield.

With the midfield depth also thin at this stage (Marc Roca is back at training, but was inured earlier in the week), Flick will definitely have to be ready to juggle things around.
