FC Bayern Munich will have to make do without the injured Kingsley Coman in the Champions League second leg against Arsenal FC and beyond. The offensive player had to be substituted injured on Saturday in the 2-0 (0-0) draw against 1. FC Köln in the Bundesliga. The exact diagnosis came in the evening: Coman had suffered “a muscle bundle injury in the right adductor,” Bayern announced. The 27-year-old will be “missed for several weeks” and participation in the European Championship with France also appears to be in acute danger for him.

“Kingsley’s injury is a huge downer,” said coach Thomas Tuchel previously. “Of course that makes me very sad because I know how hard he has worked and how important he is for us. And then first Serge (Gnabry) is out, then him. And with Leroy (Sané) it’s written in the stars “It’s bitter, of course.”

Serge Gnabry will miss the quarter-final second leg against Arsenal next Wednesday due to a hamstring injury sustained in the 2-2 draw in London. Leroy Sané missed the win against Cologne due to pubic bone problems. The ailing Manuel Neuer also didn’t play. Three and a half failures within a week were very bitter, said Tuchel.

Coman was examined on Saturday evening at the club premises on Säbener Strasse. The winger was injured during a final action in the Cologne penalty area without any opposition and had to be substituted in the 50th minute.
