De Ligt misses final training session before Real Madrid clash

Matthijs de Ligt didn't take part in Bayern Munich's final training session ahead of Tuesday's clash with Real Madrid and is therefore unlikely to feature.


It looks like Bayern Munich will be without Matthijs de Ligt when they take on Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal tie on Tuesday.

After de Ligt was forced off with a knee problem in Saturday's 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel left it open at his pre-match press conference on Monday afternoon whether the defender would be fit enough to play against Real Madrid.

Since the Dutch centre-back didn't take part in Bayern's final training session later on Monday, he looks unlikely to feature on Tuesday night. Kim Min-jae is likely to start alongside Eric Dier in central defense in de Ligt's absence.

On the positive side for Bayern, Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané, Dayot Upamecano and Konrad Laimer, who were also listed as doubtful by Tuchel, all trained on Monday.
