Bayern Munich forward Klara Bühl is set to miss the next several weeks after injuring her ankle in practice on Wednesday. Thankfully for the club, there’s only one league match remaining for the entire month of September.
Bühl has been absolutely superb for Bayern this season in their opening two games of the Frauen Bundesliga season as Bayern have romped to 8-0 and 3-0 victories over Werder Bremen and SC Sand. While Bühl has yet to pick up her first goal of the season, she’s been instrumental in Bayern’s attack, picking up three assists.
The only Bayern game that Bühl will definitely not take part in is Saturday’s match against her old club Freiburg. Then, the women’s game will head into the international break, and Bayern won’t take the field again until September 25 when they travel to face Elversberg in the DFB Pokal Frauen. The first matches of the UEFA Women’s Champions League don’t start until October 5, so Bühl may not miss anything there.
While Bühl was recently called up to the German national team, she will no longer be making the trip. We wish her a speedy recovery.
With Bühl sidelined, it’s likely that Jens Scheuer will turn to Lineth Beerensteyn on the right side of attack to replicate Bühl’s speed and skill with the ball. Beerensteyn’s speed is a constant threat to any defense who think they can keep her in front of them.
