So Nagelsmann plans without Müller and Kimmich

Full focus on the Champions League!

Due to the absence of Thomas Müller (33) and Joshua Kimmich (27) due to the corona, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann (35) has to reschedule for the Champions League kick against Viktoria Pilsen on Tuesday (6.45 p.m. / DAZN).

And the Bayern coach already has the replacement idea in mind!

According to BILD information, Nagelsmann planned on Monday around the secret final training session for the Pilsen game in midfield with Leon Goretzka (27) and newcomer Ryan Gravenberch (20). But it is still unclear who will take on Kimmich’s defensive role.

Nagelsmann on Goretzka: “We have to think about what position he plays in. Whether he replaces Josh in the more defensive variant or in his eighth position, where his goal threat is more effective due to his skill in the air. I’m currently more inclined towards this variant, as I see him as more valuable in the position with his power.”

For Gravenberch, this probably means a deployment as a defensive midfielder, which Marcel Sabitzer (28) could have taken on otherwise.

The Dutchman comes with home swing. It was only on Sunday that he attended the premiere of the Amazon documentary “Parels van Amsterdam” (Pearls of Amsterdam) in Amsterdam, in which, among other things, his career in the Ajax forge is highlighted. The day before, Gravenberch was officially dismissed in Amsterdam to great applause.

A newcomer also slips in on the offensive. Mathys Tel (17), who was signed by Stade Rennes for up to 28.5 million euros, is about to make his debut in the premier class. In the 2-0 win over Barcelona, ​​the Frenchman was allowed to play as a substitute for ten minutes.

In addition to Tel, Nagelsmann also plans to attack with Sadio Mané (30), Jamal Musiala (19) and Serge Gnabry (27), who gets another chance from the start.

The defensive back four almost sets itself up. On the left, Alphonso Davies (21) doesn’t get a break against Pilsen, in the center are Dayot Upamecano (23) and Matthijs de Ligt (23) after Lucas Hernandez’s injury. Nagelsmann only has to choose between Benjamin Pavard (26) and Noussair Mazraoui (24) on the right.

The coach kept a bit of a secret about his starting eleven on Monday: “I haven’t made a hundred percent decision yet.”

Kingsley Coman (26) will not be an option for the Pilsen game after his muscle fiber tear, but could be back in the squad for the top game in Dortmund on Saturday (6:30 p.m.).
