At the end of the first half of the season, FC Bayern has to deal with a well-stocked hospital. After his thigh injury against Hertha, Alphonso Davies will not be involved at Werder Bremen. As part of the matchday PK, Julian Nagelsmann also provided information about which stars are also missing.
After Union Berlin lost 5-0 at Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Bayern are back at the top of the table. To keep it that way, the Nagelsmann team should be victorious again at SV Werder Bremen. It won't be a sure-fire success, especially since another trio will be missing in addition to Davies. "Matthijs de Ligt, Josip Stanisic and Thomas Müller are out," said the Bayern coach immediately. Thomas Müller is "on the mend", but Nagelsmann wants to "give him peace before the World Cup and take no risks". We will almost certainly not see Raumdeuter in a Bayern jersey again this calendar year. "I will probably decide not to take him to the Schalke game either, so that he is fresh for the World Cup," announced the Bayern coach. The first half of the season is also over for Stanisic, who is suffering from tonsillitis. On the other hand, things are looking better for central defender Matthijs de Ligt. "I'm optimistic about Matthijs that he'll be back against Schalke," announced Nagelsmann.
On the other hand, there is no need to worry about Manuel Neuer, who will be in goal and who is doing "very well". On the other hand, there is still a small fringe sign behind Upamecano. "He's ailing, but I'll be fine," said Nagelsmann, but noted that the Frenchman had played "a lot of games". But since the back four with Mazraoui, Pavard, Upamecano and Hernandez practically sets itself up, Upamecano will have to fight his way through. If not, Joshua Kimmich - and therefore Julian Nagelsmann - can dress warmly. It is quite possible that the midfield leader would have to move into the defensive chain - possibly even on the left back. However, a chain of three would not be ruled out either.
