Champions League: Bayern training in front of Real with de Ligt, Musiala and Dier

Before departure to Madrid, there are positive signals from FC Bayern’s training. Coach Tuchel can plan for the Real clash with several important players who were questionable.

This final training gives FC Bayern Munich courage. During the last practice session before the decisive battle for a place in the Champions League final against Real Madrid, all of the ailing or recently sidelined football professionals were there on the club’s premises in Munich before leaving for Spain. Above all, defender Matthijs de Ligt, who was missing from the 2-2 draw in the semi-final first leg a week ago due to knee problems.

National player Jamal Musiala (knee), who was recently sidelined in the 3-1 defeat in Stuttgart, was also apparently able to train without any problems, at least in the first 15 minutes, which were open to the media. Central defender Eric Dier, who injured his head in Stuttgart, still had a plaster on his forehead after a laceration. Leroy Sané is said to be biting his teeth again because of his pubic bone pain, as is the Austrian Konrad Laimer, who stood out in the first leg, after an ankle injury.

Friend: Everyone is ready for action

“We had a few players who were injured, but most of them were able to take part in the final training and are feeling good,” said sports director Christoph Freund shortly before departure. “Now it’s a matter of finding the right mix, but Thomas Tuchel and his coaching team will certainly do that. The team’s anticipation is very, very high.” All the stars from training could “also play” against Real.

“We are now one step ahead of Wembley. That is the big goal,” said Freund. “That is the big goal that we have in mind and that should drive us forward, of course.”

Two stars are missing

On Wednesday (9 p.m./DAZN), coach Thomas Tuchel will have to do without Raphaël Guerreiro, who injured his foot in Stuttgart, and attacker Kingsley Coman, who is back in training after a muscle injury. “The starting position is clear,” said Tuchel. The winner will advance to the final on June 1st in London against Borussia Dortmund or Paris Saint-Germain. “We have 90 minutes, 120 minutes and maybe a penalty shootout,” said 50-year-old Tuchel.
