Nübel sidelined with ankle ligament injury
FC Bayern goalkeeper Alexander Nübel has been sidelined for up to as month. "He suffered an ankle ligament injury yesterday. He'll probably be out for three to four weeks," said coach Hansi Flick on Friday in the press conference prior to the Bundesliga home match against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
The boss also said it remains too early for Corentin Tolisso, recently out of action with muscular problems, to make his comeback against the side from the Kraichgau region. "It's going quite well with him, we plan for him to rejoin the squad from Sunday," Flick said. Tanguy Nianzou (torn muscle) has taken "the next step in his rehabilitation training. It was his second serious muscle injury. We have to be careful with that, and bring him step-by-step up to the next level."
Due to positive COVID tests, Leon Goretzka and Javi Martínez will also be missing against Hoffenheim:
