BAR VS BAY: Bayern Munich trio have been ruled out of Barcelona clash with injuries

Barca president Joan Laporta and his camp succeeded in enriching their squad depth this summer with the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Jules Kounde, and Andreas Christensen among others making a move to Spotify Camp Nou.


The Blaugranas will shift their attention to their next UEFA Champions League game where they will be at loggerheads with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich after an outstanding performance against the Athletic club tonight.

According to reports coming from BARCA NEWS, Barcelona has been handed a slight boost as three of Bayern’s key players have been ruled out for the game.


The report has it that the list includes Manuel Neuer, who is not expected to come back until the game against Mainz due to his shoulder issues. The club captain had notably missed the most recent game against TSG Hoffenheim.


Another player Leroy Sane has been ruled out as well. The German international has been sidelined with a thigh injury lately and he is not expected to recover until the Inter Milan game, in match day 6 of the Champions League group stages.


The report adds that the biggest absentee, though, could be Lucas Hernandez. The Frenchman is suffering a strain that he picked up in the win over SC Freiburg. He has been ruled out for the Barcelona game, which should greatly hamper Bayern’s defensive solidity.
