Bayern star Leon Goretzka fought back successfully after his knee surgery and showed good performances in the first games after his break. The German national player is currently at a disadvantage in a duel with Marcel Sabitzer. However, this could change in the foreseeable future.
Goretzka actually wanted to be in the starting XI in Milan, but Nagelsmann opted for Marcel Sabitzer, as in the previous games. In a personal conversation, the Bayern coach was able to convey his decision correctly. "It was explained to me in an understandable way. I think the leap after eight or nine minutes against Union would have been a bit big. Now it's been a few minutes more. That's how you do it when you build up properly after an injury," said Goretzka quoted by BILD. But it is also clear that Goretzka will no longer be satisfied with 30-minute missions. If it doesn't work out against VfB with a game from the start, he will certainly be eager for the match against FC Barcelona. One can assume that the actor is allowed to start at least one of the two games.
