Bayern Munich might be on an international break, but that has not stopped the injury gods from wreaking a little havoc on the Bavarians.
Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is expected to miss the squad’s Liechtenstein match due to the lingering capsular ligament injury in his right ankle that he suffered while playing Bayern Munich.

Okay, that is not altogether unsurprising because Neuer was battling that knock for a bit now.
Well, according to Bild journalist Heiko Niedderer, Thomas Müller is suffering from adductor issues and sat out practice:

Besides Manuel Neuer, also not there today: Thomas Müller! Has adductor problems. #dfb #training
Guessing on the severity of the injury would not be wise, but surely Bayern Munich fans are hoping it is not serious.
More, France midfielder Corentin Tolisso’s run of awful injury luck has continued per RMC Sport:
Corentin Tolisso was injured in training on Tuesday with the France team and is unlikely to play the match against Bosnia-Herzegovina this Wednesday evening (8:45 p.m.) as part of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
According to our information, the midfielder was injured in training on Tuesday on the eve of the match. The nature of his injury has not yet filtered out but should force the Bayern Munich player to give up this back-to-school match for the Blues.
The injury gods have no mercy.
