Bayern Munich team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Lokomotiv Moscow

Sports Mole rounds up Bayern Munich's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League clash with Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday evening.

Bayern Munich will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Champions League when the holders welcome Lokomotiv Moscow to the Allianz Arena in their final Group A clash on Wednesday.

Hansi Flick's side are already guaranteed to finish top of their group, but their winning streak in Europe's elite competition was ended last week by Atletico Madrid, who held the Bavarian giants to a 1-1 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Bayern also failed to take maximum points from their most recent Bundesliga game as they played out a pulsating 3-3 draw with RB Leipzig in the German top flight, and Flick also saw a couple more players take up spots in the medical room following that six-goal thriller.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Bayern's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their showdown with Lokomotiv Moscow.

Javi Martinez

Status: Out
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: Unknown

The veteran Javi Martinez was named in the starting lineup against Leipzig but lasted just 25 minutes before being hauled off with an apparent groin injury. Bayern have since confirmed that the Spaniard will be out for the forseeable future.

Jerome Boateng

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: Unknown

Jerome Boateng was Bayern's second casualty against Leipzig as he was forced off in the final 10 minutes with a muscular problem. As is the case with Martinez, the extent of the defender's injury is currently unclear, but Bayern are sure to be without Boateng in midweek.

Lucas Hernandez

Status: Out
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: Unknown

Bayern confirmed that Lucas Hernandez was forced to miss the six-goal thriller with Leipzig after suffering a thigh injury. The left-back is not thought to be nursing anything serious, but he is expected to sit out the visit of Lokomotiv as well.

Joshua Kimmich

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: January 3 (vs. Mainz 05)

Joshua Kimmich has not taken to the field since sustaining a knee injury in last month's Klassiker triumph. The midfielder is making good progress in his recovery but is not expected to return to action until 2021.

Alphonso Davies

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: December 9 (vs. Lokomotiv Moscow)

Alphonso Davies has been sidelined since late October with a serious ankle injury, but the highly-rated left-back has now returned to full training after making excellent progress in his rehabilitation. Davies could therefore be in contention to make his comeback against Lokomotiv this week - a timely return given Hernandez's injury.

Corentin Tolisso

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: December 9 (vs. Lokomotiv Moscow)

Corentin Tolisso has been struggling with muscular problems recently and did not make the cut for Bayern's fixture with Leipzig at the weekend. The French midfielder is reportedly yet to return to full training and it is therefore highly unlikely to see Tolisso line up on Wednesday.


Marc Roca was suspended for last week's trip to Atletico but is available here, meaning that Bayern have no players banned for Wednesday's game.
