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.

Hasan Salihamidžić at the airport: “Things are looking better for Kingsley Coman. We still have 36 hours before the game”. #LFCFCB

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.
