On the eve of the Champions League quarter-final second leg against PSG on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes (9 p.m., live on RMC Sport 1), Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick spoke about his squad. Injured in the first leg, midfielder Leon Goretzka will be part of the squad along with other affected players such as Lucas Hernandez, Jerome Boateng and Kingsley Coman.
Like Mauricio Pochettino at PSG, Hansi Flick also has problems with his workforce. As in the first leg a week ago, the Bayern Munich coach knows that he will not be able to count on certain executives. The packages of Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry and Niklas Süle have been recorded for a long time.
For doubtful players, the technician arrived with good news on Monday at a press conference on the eve of the quarter-final second leg, Tuesday evening at the Parc des Princes (at 9 p.m. live on RMC Sport 1). “It is not so easy for the staff to have so many players affected, injured or affected by the coronavirus (Gnabry)”, first declared the Bavarian coach before detailing the forces present.

Hernandez, Coman and Boateng also in the group
The main question mark was the presence of midfielder Leon Goretzka, who suffered a strain in the first leg. “Leon and Lucas (Hernandez) will be part of the group,” Flick said. Regarding the French world champion, he had been affected by the odds. “Everyone in training (this Monday) should be part of the squad like Boateng and Coman.” The center-back and Bayern winger both suffered left knee injuries on Saturday in the Bundesliga game against Union Berlin. The European champions are due to fly to Paris this Monday afternoon. Beaten 3-2 by the Parisians at the Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich will have to score at least two at the Parc to hope to win their ticket for the semi-finals.
