Munich said: “The club’s medical team scanned the injury and found that he suffered a partial ligament tear. He will miss the next match against Dortmund. “Local German media outlets are predicting he could be out for as little as four weeks and as long as six weeks.

However, an untimely knee injury forced him to drop out of the line-up .Diricht’s injury meant that Kim was given even more rest .Kim has now played full-time in seven consecutive league games and will likely continue to anchor Munich’s backline until the final whistle .Munich are currently second in the Bundesliga 카지노사이트 (23 points) behind Leverkusen (25 points). Their round 20 away game against Dortmund kicks off at 2:30am on the 5th.
