By news-admin

Thiago Alcantara – FC Bayern Munchen conquered one obstacle on the second round of DFB-Pokal against SV Rodinghausen. Die Roten won 2-1 at Bremer Brucke. Unfortunately, the victory wasn’t good for Thiago Alcantara who couldn’t continue the match due to injury.

Predicted to win with a great score, apparently, Bayern just won 2-1 by the goals from Sandro Wagner (8′) and Thomas Muller (13′) responded by Linus Meyer goal at 49′. What made it worse, the victory got a victim.

Thiago Alcantara could only play for 75 minutes before substituted by Serge Gnabry. Bayern coach Niko Kovac can only hope the injury of 27-year-old Spanish midfielder won’t be too serious and recovers soon.

“I hope it is not that bad. But it doesn’t look good. He’s in a lot of pain right now, but we’ll be back in the morning to investigate,” Kovac said reported by Goal.

Thiago’s injury is reducing Bayern players in the midfield. Corentin Tolisso also has a knee injury and only Leon Goretzka and Renato Sanches remain.

This season, Bayern are frequently got injured players. They were taking turns: Tolisso, Goretzka. Kingsley Coman, Arjen Robben, Jerome Boateng, Rafinha, Mats Hummels, and Franck Ribery.

Bayern fans hope this series of the injury won’t bother the four consecutive victories of all competitions, after the victory absence in four consecutive matches.
