FC Bayern: shock for the record champions! Robert Lewandowski falls out with a knee injury for weeks. Who will replace the Pole?
- FC Bayern will miss Robert Lewandowski for weeks
- The striker injured his knee at the Chelsea FC gala
- So far, Lewandowski has started in every game.
Update from February 27, 3.15 p.m .: There is much speculation about who should replace Robert Lewandowski in the coming weeks. Serge Gnabry? Thomas Müller? Or Joshua Zirkzee?
In any case, the Pole has now spoken on Twitter and thanked for the many recovery wishes. "Keep your fingers crossed. I will be back soon and will be ready to fight, ”continued the Bayern star.
Lewandowski suffered a fracture of the tibia at the left knee joint at the Bayern gala at Chelsea . Who coach Hansi Flick will line up for Lewy at TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday (3.30 p.m.) will hopefully be revealed on Friday (12.30 p.m.) on FCB-PK.
Thank you for all your kind words of support Keep your fingers crossed. I'll be back soon and I'll be ready to fight- Robert Lewandowski (@lewy_official) February 26, 2020
Update from February 27, 10.37 a.m .: Robert Lewandowski is out for several weeks - the question arises how FC Bayern Munich can intercept the failure. Who will take the center forward position? Serge Gnabry, Thomas Müller, Joshua Zirkzee or a completely different one? Vote!
The question that still arises is how FC Bayern Munich plays when Hansi Flick pulls a player forward from the traditional position. ( In many scenarios, the defense chain and the two midfield positions are only changed if Davies is pulled forward ).
A: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies - Kimmich, Thiago - Müller, Goretzka, Coutinho - Gnabry
B: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Hernández, Alaba - Kimmich, Thiago - Müller, Goretzka / Coutinho, Davies - Gnabry
C: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies - Kimmich, Thiago - Coutinho, Goretzka, Gnabry - Müller
D: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies - Kimmich, Thiago - Coutinho, Müller, Gnabry - Zirkzee
E: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies - Kimmich, Thiago - Goretzka, Müller, Gnabry - Zirkzee
F: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies - Kimmich, Thiago - Müller, Coutinho, Gnabry - Zirkzee
G: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Hernandez, Alaba - Kimmich, Thiago - Davies, Coutinho, Gnabry - Müller
H: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Hernandez, Alaba - Kimmich, Thiago - Davies, Müller, Gnabry - Zirkzee
Of course, some other variants with other systems (triple chain, double point) are also possible, but we have limited ourselves to the most probable ones for us.
The two probably. Options for me:
A: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies - Kimmich, Thiago - Müller, Goretzka, Coutinho - Gnabry.
B: Neuer - Pavard, Boateng, Hernández, Alaba - Kimmich, Thiago - Müller, Goretzka / Coutinho, Davies - Gnabry.
