Bayern Munich yet again showed pure class as they beat Eintracht Frankfurt though their star winger faces injury woes.

Another major issue for Bayern Munich following Alphonso Davies’ injury scare on Saturday. The Canada international evidently limped off the pitch in the opening minutes in the Bundesliga clash vs Eintracht Frankfurt.

Unfortunately, Davies sprained his ankle while running without the ball and without any tackle from the opposition.

The 19-year-old consequently, switched with Lucas Hernandez in the third minute of the game for Bayern. This followed tense scenes after Davies was helped by two staff members to walk off the pitch.

Although now, Bayern boss Hansi Flick is up for a challenge ahead of his injury results.

No Alphonso, no worries.

However, Davies’ injury did not stop the Bavarian giants from claiming what is theirs. Robert Lewandowski scored yet another hat-trick for Bayern.

Leroy Sane finally came off the bench to net an unstoppable goal at Allianz Arena. And, in the final minutes, the 17-year-old Jamal Musiala slotted it past Kevin Trapp.

The German champions will have a tough few weeks ahead of them. Flick’s side will fly to Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday. Furthermore, they will face against Borussia Dortmund after matches vs Koln and Salzburg.

Additionally, Davies featured all the games this season except the domestic league opener against Schalke.

The youngster hopes to have a successful season after Bayern’s treble-winning display in the last campaign. Davies managed to set 10 assists along with three goals from the left-wing.

Moreover, he knows that the Bayern boss believes in his potential after his arrival from MLS.

“He is a good mentor and talks to his players, especially his young players,” Davies has told the Bundesliga’s official channel.

“The boss wants everybody to thrive at this club and him being the manager is good for everyone at this club. Flick is a down-to-earth guy and he was a player once, so he knows what we go through and how hard it is to play this game, especially with the schedule we have right now.

“We are playing every three days and it is not easy. It is truly a blessing that he is there for all the players.”
