FC Bayern announced Alphonso Davies' diagnosis. The Canadian also spoke up the day after the game. A longer absence of the 21-year-old need not be feared.
It was probably the most discussed scene in the classic: Just before half-time, Jude Bellingham kicked Bayern left-back Alphonso Davies in the face. While the Canadian had to be substituted, referee Deniz Aytekin said he showed "empathy" and did not issue a yellow-red card for the young BVB star.
The day after the 2-2 draw, the record champions announced Davies' diagnosis. As a precaution, the 21-year-old was examined in hospital during the game with suspected concussion. Davies suffered a contusion of the skull and is doing well given the circumstances, FCB said in a statement.
He will stop training on Sunday. A longer failure is not to be feared. Davies himself previously explained this in his Instagram story. "I just want to thank everyone for the news. I'm looking forward to getting back on the field," said the Canadian.
