In the 1-5 defeat in Frankfurt, Bayern star Serge Gnabry had a day to forget. Shortly after his substitution, he has to go down again.
Frankfurt – Rarely in the recent past have FC Bayern been as weak as they were in the 1-5 defeat in Frankfurt. Against a mercilessly effective SGE, coach Thomas Tuchel's team hardly found any means over 90 minutes and had to travel home with a good pack in their luggage.
FC Bayern lose game in Frankfurt and probably Serge Gnabry too
But it's not just the bankruptcy itself that is likely to cause worry lines for the coach. A scene from the 68th minute probably still resonates. After a tackle, attacker Serge Gnabry sat down on the ground, grabbed his left thigh and had to be treated.
After a few moments, it was clear that the 28-year-old could not continue. Jamal Musiala, who has been sidelined with a thigh injury in recent weeks, got ready to come on for his teammate in the 71st minute. By this time, Gnabry had already made his way to the dressing room.

FC Bayern lose to Eintracht: Serge Gnabry has to go off shortly after substitution
Particularly bitter from his point of view, in addition to the injury, is the fact that he had contracted it immediately after his substitution. It wasn't until the 66th minute that he was brought on for Kingsley Coman at 1-5. In addition, it is already the second injury in the current season after the forearm fracture.
Neither in the Sky interview after the game nor at the press conference did Tuchel comment on the personnel matter. It remains to be seen whether Gnabry will be available next week, which has two games in store with the games against Manchester United on Tuesday and the Bundesliga cracker against Stuttgart five days later.

Recently, the Stuttgart-born player has not been able to draw lasting attention to himself and usually only came off the bench. In the coming season, the competition for his position will be even greater with the signing of Bryan Zaragoza. (MASC)
