Bayern Munich’s Dayot Upamecano Faces Extended Absence Due to Hamstring Injury

Monday, October 9th, 11:50AM EDT – The injury woes continue for Bayern Munich as center-back Dayot Upamecano could be sidelined for an extended period of 3-4 weeks, according to a report from Bild (as captured by @iMiaSanMia). This news comes as a significant blow to the club, already grappling with defensive injury concerns.

Upamecano, who had recently impressed for Bayern in their Bundesliga match against SC Freiburg, is set to undergo an MRI scan to assess the full extent of his left hamstring injury. The timing couldn’t be worse for Bayern, as they face a congested schedule following the international break, and the absence of key defenders raises concerns about squad depth.

The French Football Federation announced that Upamecano will not participate in the upcoming international fixtures due to his injury. This development adds Upamecano to the list of injured center-backs at Bayern, including Matthijs de Ligt and Tarek Buchmann.

With Upamecano sidelined, the French national team will replace him with Axel Diasi. However, details regarding the severity of Upamecano’s injury remain unclear at this point.

This series of injuries is undoubtedly a setback for Bayern Munich and its fans, as Upamecano has played a crucial role in their defense this season. The club will be anxiously awaiting updates on Upamecano’s condition, hoping for a swift recovery as they navigate a challenging schedule ahead.
