Alphonso Davies ruled out for games against Bayer Leverkusen and Lazio

As reported by Sky Germany, Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies has been ruled out for two to three weeks with a knee injury.

During Bayern’s 3-1 home victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday afternoon, the Canadian international twisted his knee and was forced off the pitch. It is understood that Davies has suffered a strained medial ligament in his left knee and will, therefore, miss Der Rekordmeister’s upcoming trip to Bayer Leverkusen and the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Lazio.

While it is expected that Raphaël Guerreiro will fill at left-back for Thomas Tuchel’s side in Davies’ absence, it is a further body that Bayern are without. Injuries have plagued the German champions throughout the course of the season, and when they travel to Leverkusen on Saturday, they will be without at least six senior players.

It is an issue that will undoubtedly play in favour of Die Werkself, despite having a number of key players out on international duty themselves. Regardless, there is hope that Joshua Kimmich and Dayot Upamecano will return to the Bayern squad for the weekend.

Against Union Berlin, both players suffered injuries; however, Tuchel explained to Sky that they will be assessed during the week: “We will definitely try that with Upa and Josh. That will be decided in the middle of the week.”
