Bayern München coach Julian Nagelsmann has offered a squad update ahead of his side's Champions League clash with Benfica in Lisbon tomorrow.


In addition to Alphonso Davies, who was forced off during Sunday's 5-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen, Leon Goretzka will miss the game in Portugal.

"Leon Goretzka won't be able to play. He has a cold. He could have possibly played, but we didn't want to take that risk," Nagelsmann told reporters at the pre-match press conference.

"Alphonso Davies didn't sustain a serious injury against Leverkusen, but he seems exhausted and fatigued, so we're going to give him a rest," added the Bayern coach.
