Alaba and Boateng subbed off with knocks
In the course of FC Bayern's 7-2 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday evening, David Alaba and Jérôme Boateng were both subbed off with injury. Left-back Alaba was unable to continue after half-time due to pain in the ribs. "I had to grit my teeth and get on with it, but then it became impossible," the Austria international reported. Boateng appeared to take a knock and had to be replaced on 72 minutes. The pair will undergo examinations by the club medical unit on Wednesday in Munich.
