Hernandez with fond memories of Salzburg


Lucas Hernandez turns 26 today, enjoying his birthday in a really special week. Monday’s training marks the start of preparations for a match that the birthday boy will have fond memories of.

Only goal against next opponents

Hernandez rounded off a 6-2 win for Bayern away at Salzburg in November 2020.

The defender scored his only goal in the Champions League and also for Bayern as the German champions beat Red Bull Salzburg 6-2 on 3 November 2020. FCB now face the Austrian double winners on Wednesday in the first leg of their last-16 tie for the first time since last visiting the Red Bull Arena – a special place for the France international. Bon anniversaire, Lucas!
