Alphonso Davies’s injury overshadows Bayern win at Hertha

Bayern Munich won a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Hertha in Berlin, but Canadian international injury cast a doubt over his chances for 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

Bayern Munich won a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Hertha Berlin in match week 13 of the Bundesliga.

The visitors thought the game was decided early when they led 3-0 after just 38 minutes from the start thanks to goals from Musiala and Choupo-Moting (2), but the hosts came back strongly reducing the deficit for a goal thanks to goals from Lukebakio and Selke in the final 5 minutes of the first half

The visitors tried to seal the game in the second half with a fourth goal, but both teams failed to record a shoot on target throughout the second half of the game, ending with a 3-2 result for Bayern Munich who have now temporarily moved up to the top of the standings with 28 points, while Hertha Berlin conceded their sixth loss to remain at the 14th place with11 points.

The most notable action in the match was the Canadian international left-back Alphonso Davies, who suffered a hamstring injury that forced him to leave the field less than 20 minutes into the second half, replaced by the French defender Lucas Hernández.

Alphonso Davies is the leading star of Canada’s for 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which will start in 15 days.

Julian Nagelsmann spoke after the end of the game about his defender’s injury, commenting that the injury was hamstring strain: “According to the Doc, there is at least one fiber tear. Have to wait and see what comes out tomorrow.”

The Canadian national team will play in Group F, alongside Belgium, Morocco and Croatia, and their first game will be against the Belgian national team on November 23.
