Terrible news! (Now it’s acceptable news!)

Update #2: Musiala will only miss two weeks and might be back in action by the end of November

Bayern source @iMiaSanMia tweeted that Musiala is set to sit out for a “couple of weeks“, with Sport1’s Kerry Hau clarifying the timetable for the 20-year-old’s return:

This would mean Musiala will skip the Heidenheim match in the Bundesliga this weekend and the international break; this also means Thomas Müller is slated to play more games in the former Chelsea FC man’s absence.

Update: Musiala may miss up to one month depending on the severity of the injury

Musiala may have either a strained hamstring or a torn fiber, and could be sidelined for one month pending a diagnosis:

Bayern Munich are playing against Galatasaray in the Champions League and are having difficulties breaking down the Turkish team, and their job just got a whole lot harder. At 40 minutes, Jamal Musiala was fouled by a Galatasaray player (they had been fouling a lot and a whole lot of simulation on the side) and after getting checked by the team physios, the 20-year-old motioned to ask for a substitution:

It is unknown as of now what injury Musiala has picked up (initial suspicion is that it is a hamstring injury), but the Bavarians are taking it cautiously with their young player and brought him off the pitch. Thomas Müller comes on for him.

As of now, the Rekordmeister have had numerous chances to take the lead but were unable to take advantage of them. Harry Kane, Leroy Sané, Kingsley Coman, and even Leon Goretzka who plays higher than Kane all missed their chances.

Maybe this was just tempting fate ...
