Alphonso Davies is set to miss Bayern München's Champions League clash with SL Benfica on Wednesday.




According to Bild, the Canadian international will not be risked after he sustained a thigh injury in Sunday's 5-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen.

On the positive side for Bayern, the injury isn't serious, and Davies isn't expected to be out for long, per the report.

Davies' absence means Lucas Hernandez is likely to be moved to left-back, with Niklas Süle and Dayot Upamecano forming a partnership in central defense and Benjamin Pavard playing on the right-hand side.
