Berlin (AP) – FC Bayern Munich has to play against FC Union in the top match of the Bundesliga on Saturday evening in Berlin without Niklas Süle. The national player fails. According to information from the German news agency, a report from the newspaper “Bild” is correct.
There was no official confirmation from the club a few hours before the match (6.30pm / Sky) in the Berlin stadium on Saturday. Bayern coach Hansi Flick thinks the leaders of the table will not publish any personal information on the day before the lineups are announced a good hour before kick-off. The 25-year-old Süle would have suffered a knee injury in the Champions League 2-0 against Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday.
Before the non-public final practice session on Friday afternoon, Flick only confirmed the further failure of national player Joshua Kimmich. Against Union, David Alaba and Jérôme Boateng will likely start in the defense center after Süle’s failure.
