Xabi Alonso will have to do without Sardar Azmoun at the start of his Leverkusen commitment. According to the Werkself, the 27-year-old tore a muscle fiber while warming up for the Champions League game against FC Porto.
Bayer coach Gerardo Seoane, who was released after the 2-0 defeat, did not use Azmoun against the Portuguese. The attacker's season - like that of the entire team - has been extremely unfortunate so far anyway. In eleven competitive appearances, Azmoun has not yet managed a single direct involvement in a goal. He was only three times in the starting XI.
