Serge Gnabry injury forced him out of the field during the Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich match.

What happened to Serge Gnabry during Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich?

Bayern Munich attacker Serge Gnabry suffered yet another injury blow during the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid. Gnabry was forced off in the first half and was replaced by Canada international Alphonso Davies. Gnabry had just returned from a hamstring injury and judging by the nature of his current blow, he might have picked up another. The German was spotted clutching the back of his right leg. If this is indeed a hamstring injury, Gnabry’s season could be over as these types of blows usually take three to four weeks to heal.

The game at the Santiago Bernabeu has gotten off to a fiery start with both sides putting their all on the line. Vinicius Junior hit the post before Manuel Neuer denied Rodrygo’s strike off the rebound. Harry Kane, meanwhile, launched a thunderous volley from outside the penalty area, which Andriy Lunin fingertipped away.

Gnabry’s injury, though, could be a big blow for Thomas Tuchel’s side. The German’s pacey presence is a great weapon for Bayern on the left-hand side of the field. The onus is now on Davies to do the job. To remind readers, the tie is still all square on aggregate as it ended 2-2 at the Allianz Arena in the first leg.

Serge Gnabry’s advice to fellow Bayern Munich players ahead of Real Madrid clash

Bayern Munich had a few great opportunities in the first leg and were perhaps the more dominant side. However, they failed to capitalize on those and win the game in Germany. Serge Ggnabry, ahead of the second leg, urged his teammates to make the most of their chances. He said (via Bavarian Football Networks):

“We have to take advantage of the scoring chances we create and then kill them. We played a very good game in the first leg, we had many scoring chances and we could have scored one or two more goals. That is a very, very important point for Wednesday.”

Bayern, however, are yet to find a breakthrough in the second leg. Real Madrid have been the side that have seen the ball more at the Santiago Bernabeu so far.
