Here we are...just a day before Bayern Munich is set to kick off the Rückrunde against Borussia Mönchengladbach and mostly everyone is still unsure if the game will happen.
Well, we’ve got some bad news, some good news, and some semi-good news.
Let’s take a look and see the latest coming out of Säbener Straße.
According to Tz’s Manuel Bonke, Leon Goretzka only trained individually and that will likely rule him out for the Gladbach match:
Bonke also said that Niklas Süle was back in team training and should be ready for Friday after dealing with back pain on Wednesday:
So, what does the availability status look like for the Bavarians if Bonke’s reporting is accurate? Here you go:
- COVID-19: Manuel Neuer, Dayot Upamecano, Omar Richards, Leroy Sané, Kingsley Coman, Lucas Hernández, Tanguy Nianzou, Corentin Tolisso, Alphonso Davies, Christopher Scott
- African Cup of Nations: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bouna Sarr
- Sick: Gabriel Vidovic
- Injuries — Doubtful: Josip Stanišić, Leon Goretzka
- Injuries — Probable: Niklas Süle
So...how does Bayern Munich fill all of those holes? With youth! Check this out:
Der #FCBayern-Kader für #FCBBMG wird mit sieben Campus-Kickern aufgefüllt: Bright Arrey-Mbi, Lucas Copado, Nico Feldhahn, Taylor Booth, Jamie Lawrence, Paul Wanner, Arjon Ibrahimovic nehmen heute am Abschlusstraining Teil.— Manuel Bonke (@mano_bonke) January 6, 2022
The #FCBayern squad for #FCBBMG is filled with seven campus kickers: Bright Arrey-Mbi, Lucas Copado, Nico Feldhahn, Taylor Booth, Jamie Lawrence, Paul Wanner, Arijon Ibrahimovic are taking part in the final training today.
It looks like Bayern Munich was able to get at least some of its Bayern Munich II contingent back on campus early in hopes of getting them ready for a crash course on how to take on Gladbach. Bright Arrey-Mbi, Lucas Copado, Nico Feldhahn, Taylor Booth, Jamie Lawrence, Paul Wanner, and Arijon Ibrahimovic could all see action.
