It has been a difficult second half of the season for Leroy Sane. The German winger has struggled to emulate his form from Hinrunde. However, there have been glimpses of his brilliance in the past few weeks. He played well for Bayern Munich in the two legs of the Champions League quarter-final against Arsenal.

Sane will be a key player for Bayern when they host Real Madrid on April 30. The German winger missed the game against Union Berlin last weekend due to a pubic bone problem. Bayern want to give Sane maximum rest to be fit in time for the big game against Real Madrid.

According to AZ, Bayern will rest Sane against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. The German winger is still receiving treatment for this injury. He has not trained with the squad since the win against Arsenal. Bayern will hope to see Sane join his teammates in training over the weekend.

Thomas Tuchel may not go full strength against Frankfurt since he wants to avoid injuries to key players before the game against Real Madrid. There is a significant chance of seeing the same starting XI that featured against Union Berlin on matchday 30 of the Bundesliga.

Apart from Sane, Serge Gnabry is also working hard to be fit for the game against Real Madrid. The German winger delivered a solid performance at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal before suffering a hamstring injury. Earlier this week, Gnabry was spotted training with the ball at Sabner Strasse.

Gnabry has endured a difficult campaign at Bayern due to injuries. He was on the sidelines for three months after suffering a muscle injury in December. The German international was getting back to his best just before he suffered another injury against Arsenal. Gnabry had scored the equalizer against the Gooners in the first leg of the quarter-finals.

Kingsley Coman will certainly miss the two games against Real Madrid. The French forward will miss the remainder of the campaign due to an adductor injury. Coman is facing a race against time to be fit for the summer’s European Championship. Sacha Boey will not feature against Real Madrid as he continues the recovery from a hamstring injury.


Thomas Tuchel would like to see his team maintain the winning momentum by getting all three points on Saturday. Bayern have won three of their last four games across all competitions. On the back of performances over the last couple of weeks, there is optimism amongst fans about a positive end to a difficult season.
