Pavard, a Bayern Munich right-back, will not play the Champions League quarter-finals against Barça due to injury. The Frenchman has entered the list for the Lisbon 'final to eight', but he is still on crutches and will not reach Friday
The Bayern of Munich already has scheduled the week in which it will confront to the FC Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The Bavarians reached the 'final to eight' of Lisbon after going through on of Chelsea that received three goals in Stamford Bridge and four in the Allianz Sand. The Bavarians are like a shot and for many are the big favourites to win the Glass of Europe, but the Barça will try to avoid it and give the chime.
Of face to the this decisive crash in front of the barcelonistas, the ones of Hans-Dieter Flick will happen four days in Lagos, in the coast of Algarve. There they will train and they will concentrate to prepare the chambers in Portuguese territory. The Germans are got obsessed with to fulfil the sanitary protocol of the UEFA to avoid contagions by coronavirus and have thought that the ideal was to displace already to Portugal and do there a brief 'stage' to arrive to 120% to the commitment.
In principle, the Bayern will travel to Lisbon the Thursday, the same that the Barcelona, although the blaugrana will remain in the City Condal this week. In spite of remaining still four days for the meeting, the trainer of the team muniqués already has given the list of summoned for all the 'final to eight' of Lisbon. In the same appear all the footballers that expected , including to the French Benjamin Pavard, that lesionó does several days.
The right side Frenchman was low against Chelsea in the turn and was serious doubt for the chambers, but still like this has gone in in the announcement. Nevertheless, in 'Sportive World' signal that the champion of the world with France will not recover to time to confront to the Catalans. The carrilero still would be walking with crutches and could have by in front a pair of weeks of recovery, by what could lose also the hypothetical semifinals.
A sensitive drop that will force to do changes
The one of Maubeuge has been all the indisputable season in the Bayern so much for Niko Kovac as for Flick and will be a sensitive drop for the Bavarians. Although it is not brilliant in at all, is solid in defence, intelligent to the hour to go up the band and powerful physically. His natural substitute is Álvaro Odriozola, yielded by the Real Madrid, but the donostiarra hardly has played since it arrived to Munich and seems impossible that go to trust he for a so important party.
If the ex assistant of Joachim Low does not risk with the ex of the Real Sociedad, Joshua Kimmich will go back to the side leaving a gap in the midfield. The polyvalent midfield player has played years in this place and will be a substitute of category. Remove him of in half, nevertheless, will be an advantage for the Barça, since the international German has completed a campaign excelsa in the half. Without him, the centre of the field probably will form it Thiago Alcántara, Leon Goretzka and Corint Tolisso.
