Benjamin Pavard joined his FC Bayern teammates at the Champions League finals tournament in Lisbon on Thursday. "Benjamin has come through all the tests at home well. We'll take the next step and see how things are after the game," said coach Hansi Flick at Thursday's press conference ahead of the quarter-final against Barcelona, for whom Pavard isn't yet fit. "He's not available for this game," said Flick..

The defender had suffered a ligament injury to the left tarsal about three weeks ago. As a result, the 2018 World Cup winner missed the return leg of the round of 16 tie against Chelsea and didn't travel with the team to the training camp in Lagos last Sunday.
