Bayern’s Pavard injured ahead of CL match vs Chelsea

Bayern Munich are awaiting updates after Benjamin Pavard suffered an injury two weeks ahead of the Champions League last-16 second leg against Chelsea.

Pavard reportedly injured his ankle in a training game on Sunday and had to cut the session short to receive treatment.
The scare comes as Bayern step up preparations for their August 8 clash with Frank Lampard’s side in Munich, where they will look to defend a 3-0 lead from the first game.
“Benjamin Pavard sustained an injury,” head coach Hansi Flick confirmed in a media conference after training on Sunday. 
“We are not quite sure exactly what happened, we will have to wait for the diagnosis now. We’re not quite sure how long he will be missing, or if he will be missing. We will have to wait and see.” 
There was better news for Niklas Sule, who continues to work his way back from a serious knee injury. The centre-back has not played since rupturing an anterior cruciate ligament in October, although he did make the bench for the DFP-Pokal final win over Bayer Leverkusen this month.
Sule, 24, put in extra training time while his team-mates took a break after that match and the Germany international could get the chance to prove his fitness in a friendly against Marseille on Friday.
“I’m very happy with him, with the way he’s training and the intensity he’s training with,” Flick said.  
New signings Leroy Sane and Tanguy Kouassi are ineligible to face Chelsea and will not be used in the Marseille match, but Flick has been happy with how the pair have adapted to their surroundings.
