Bayern Munich v Arsenal: Sane and Neuer passed fit for Tuchel’s men

-

Leroy Sane and Manuel Neuer have been passed fit to play for Bayern Munich against Arsenal tomorrow night.

The Germany internationals starred at the Emirates a week ago as the sides fought out a pulsating 2-2 draw in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final but missed the weekend win over Cologne with niggles.

Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel, who is definitely without the injured Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman, said: “Manuel Neuer can play and Leroy Sane can play. Due to the situation with Serge [Gnabry] and King [Kingsley Coman], Leroy will probably have to grit his teeth for as long as possible, as he has the past few weeks.”

Bayern have endured a miserable season in the Bundesliga, relinquishing the title for the first time in 12 years to Bayer Leverkusen.

However, they have performed better in Europe and have experience in the latter stages of this competition, unlike the Gunners.

Tuchel, who lifted the trophy with Chelsea in 2021, added: “We have a small advantage when it we look at the experience levels.

“We have players who have won the competition, but to turn it into a real advantage, you also need a top performance. We have this one, crucial game to take the next step. We are determined to put everything we have on the table to move forward.”

Tuchel will depart the Allianz Arena in the summer due to Bayern’s struggles but has asked the fans to put their grievances to one side tomorrow night and roar their team to victory.

He added: “We need the same dedication and effort as a team [as we showed in the first leg].

“We probably need even a little more. With our personnel situation, it is extremely important that every fan comes tomorrow with the willingness to help. We need their support.”
