Coman picks up injury in Chelsea thrashing

Bayern Munich were comfortable 3-0 winners away to Chelsea in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.

A Serge Gnabry brace in the first 10 minutes of the second half was followed up with the German international setting up Robert Lewandowski in the 76th minute.

However, it didn’t come without a casualty as Kingsley Coman limped off midway through the second half. The 23-year-old appeared to pull up just before half-time before he was eventually replaced in the 66th minute by Philippe Coutinho.

Kingsley Coman is expected to be out for around five days, according to head coach Hansi Flick, in his post-match press conference.

The French international has started six of Bayern Munich”s seven Champions League matches so far this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist. He has the same goal involvements in 15 Bundesliga appearances (11 starts) but is unlikely to face 1899 Hoffenheim at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Saturday 29 February.
