Bayern Munich vs Salzburg Team News
Flick has preferred to play Lucas Hernandez over last season’s breakout player Alphonso Davies this term at left-back. Hernandez’s selection has been made easier by Davies being absent due to injury. The Canadian defender is back in training this week with Bayern Munich but may not be fit in time for the game on Wednesday night. If he is, Flick will have another dynamic option for his team.
Joshua Kimmich is ruled out after undergoing knee surgery. He suffered the injury in late October and won’t be back for a few more weeks. Niklas Sule was left out of the team at the weekend due to an unspecified reason. He had just returned from a positive COVID-19 test. Corentin Tolisso is unlikely to play this week due to a muscle strain.
Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka is out of action for Marsch with an injury. His absence has resulted in fewer goals in recent games for the Red Bulls. Daka was scouted by a host of teams around Europe prior to his injury.
Teammate Dominik Szoboszlai is also being scouted by clubs around Europe, including Champions League opponents Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid. The winger has a seriously low £20m release clause that could be activated in January.
