Bayern Munich has lost another player to injury.
The Bavarians won their 2023-2024 Bundesliga Round 19 away match against Augsburg 3-2 at the WWK-Arena in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany on Monday (Aug. 28).
With the result, Munich (47 points) closed the gap on ‘leaders’ Leverkusen (48 points), who have played one game less.
Kim Min-Jae did not play, as he has been at the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar since the beginning of the month.
The hosts started Kane, Coman, Musial, Zane, Goretzka, Pavlovic, Davies, Dyer, Der Licht, Gereiru, and Neuer (in goal).
For their part, Augsburg started Titz, Demirovic, Jensen, Lechwecai, Jakic, Vargas, Mbabu, Hauleu, Uduokay, Iago, and Damon (GK).
Munich opened the scoring in the 23rd minute. 안전놀이터 In the ensuing scramble from a corner kick opportunity, Pavlovic, born in 2004, quickly collected the ball and scored. He also provided the assist for Kim Min-jae’s goal against Stuttgart in the 15th round of the league last year on December 18. This time, he scored his first goal in Munich.
But the goal celebration was short-lived.
The Bavarians lost Komang, who can play in both midfield and attack, to injury. He tangled with an opposing defender shortly after Pavlovic’s goal and fell to the ground before being stretchered off after complaining of pain.
With a slim one-goal lead, Munich added a second. In the fifth minute of first-half stoppage time, left back Alfonso Davies scored his second goal of the game with an audacious mid-range effort from just outside the arc. He took a half-beat before the defense could close in on him to score.
The first half ended with Munich leading 2-0.
Augsburg pulled one back. In the seventh minute of the second half, Demirovic headed home a cross from the right.
Munich scored the consolation goal. In the 12th minute of the second half, Kane saw a teammate’s shot deflect off him and quickly got his foot to the ball and headed it into the net. Even though Kane was in an offside position, the goal was awarded because the ball bounced off the defender’s foot and into the net.
Munich conceded a penalty in stoppage time, but that didn’t stop them from securing the win. They won by one goal.
However, Munich coach Thomas Tuchel was not happy. This is because of the injury to Kompany.
Tuchel had already lost a defender to injury in the previous match.
Upamecano, who had been anchoring the Munich defense in the absence of Kim Min-jae at the Asian Cup, started the 18th round match against Berlin on Friday, but only played the first half. That’s because he left the field with an injury. He suffered a torn leg muscle and will be out of action for the foreseeable future, Munich announced after the game.
Without Kim, Tuchel had planned to use Upamecano in the center of the defense, but his plans were disrupted. The center-back pairing against Augsburg consisted of Dier, 파워볼게임 a recent emergency signing from Tottenham, and Der Licht. Dier was a substitute when Upamecano went off first with an injury in the previous game.
Munich secured their second win in a row in the league, but also received the most dreaded ‘player injury’ news of all time.
