Good for Liverpool: Bayern infighting reports as Jerome Boateng & Franck Ribery stay home

Liverpool vs Bayern Munich

On Tuesday night Liverpool will host Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Both these sides are currently second in their respective leagues.

Liverpool are behind Man City on goal difference in the Premier League. The Reds also have a game in hand over the Sky Blues.

Bayern Munich are behind Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

Jerome Boateng & Franck Ribery

It’s confirmed on Monday that Jerome Boateng and Franck Ribery are out of this week’s Liverpool versus Bayern match.

Boateng has a stomach problem, while Ribery has remained in Germany after becoming a father.

Will Kingsley Coman be fit?

Bayern beat Augsburg 3-2 on Friday night.

The hero for the Bavarians was Kingsley Coman, who scored a brace in the win.

But Coman finished the Augsburg game with an injury that’s left him as a doubt for Liverpool.

In a boost for Bayern, Coman has travelled with his team mates to England on Monday.

Bayern Munich’s infighting

Bild have reported that there’s tension in the Bayern camp ahead of the Liverpool game.

The tension is between several of Bayern’s squad and manager Niko Kovac.

According to Bild, Kovac set off some of his squad when he turned up late to training.

That became an issue as Kovac recently spoke out about tardiness.
