Bayern's Niklas Suele ruled Out for Several Weeks, Benjamin Pavard Contracts Covid

Niklas Suele of Bayern Muenchen, Marcel Sabitzer of Bayern Muenchen and Benjamin Pavard of Bayern Muenchen look on during the Bundesliga match between Eintracht Frankfurt and FC Bayern München at Deutsche Bank Park on February 26, 2022 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Bayern Munich centre-back Niklas Suele is a doubt for their Champions League quarter-final next month after suffering a muscle tear in training, the Bundesliga leaders announced Thursday.

His fellow defender Benjamin Pavard has tested positive for Covid-19, leaving coach Julian Nagelsmann with a selection headache ahead of this weekend’s match against Union Berlin.

Bayern, bidding for a 10th straight Bundesliga title, have seen their advantage cut from eight points to four over the last fortnight by second-placed Borussia Dortmund.

Germany centre-back Suele has suffered a left thigh injury and was ruled out for a “few weeks".

The Champions League quarter-final draw will be held on Friday, with the ties to be played on April 5/6 and 12/13.

The Bavarian giants, six-time European champions, thrashed Red Bull Salzburg 8-2 on aggregate in the last 16.
