Mathias der Licht’s injury was a simple bruise.
Bayern Munich announced on the club’s website on Thursday that “When Der Licht had to be substituted after the first half in the 7-0 win over Bochum, the club’s medical team declared him fit. He suffered a bruise on his left knee and will only need a few days of rest,” the club updated on Der Licht’s injury.
Munich had previously beaten Bochum 7-0 at home in the fifth round of the German Bundesliga on March 23. Der Licht started the game and combined with Kim Min-jae in the center back line for 45 minutes, putting in a solid defensive performance and even scoring a header from a Joshua Kimmich corner kick. After a solid performance, Der Licht was replaced by Dayo Upamecano at the start of the second half.토토사이트
An injury was suspected. Fans were unable to gauge the extent of Der Licht’s injury as it was not shown on the replays. Some feared that Der Licht, who has struggled with injuries in recent years, had reaggravated the injury and would be sidelined again. Fortunately, Munich’s announcement put those fears to rest.
The Bavarians will now be able to field Der Licht alongside Kim Min-Jae and Upamecano. Der Licht has been sidelined since the start of the season in favor of Kim Min-jae and Upamecano, but he returned to action against Bochum and showed that he is not completely out of Thomas Tuchel’s plans.
The competition between the three players will continue to be closely watched. Following the arrival of Kim Min-jae in the summer transfer window, it was widely expected that Der Licht and Kim would be the first-choice center backs, but it has been Upamecano and Kim since the start of the season. There were local reports that Der Licht was unhappy with his playing time. However, Der Licht proved his worth in the short time he was on the pitch against Bochum, reigniting the competition for places. That’s a big positive for Munich.
