Leverkusen (AP) – Since the gala appearance in Leverkusen directly on the Madrid court: Bayern professional Lucas Hernández attended his court appointment in the Spanish capital a day earlier than announced and, therefore, went unnoticed by him. public.
The 25-year-old Frenchman had been personally and officially notified that he might have to start a six-month prison sentence in the next ten days, the responsible court told the German Press Agency.
This means that the world champion should be available to the Bundesliga leaders three days after the 5: 1 show of power at Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday (9pm / DAZN) in the Munich team’s Champions League match. at Benfica in Lisbon. Whether you actually have to go to a Spanish prison of your choice also depends on the decision of the Superior Regional Court of Madrid on your appeal. However, if he is not yet available on October 28, Hernandez should be arrested.
“I’m happy if he joins the team again on Wednesday in Lisbon and then he can play,” Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said Sunday night on BR television. The defender is scheduled to go to jail for ignoring a court ruling. It is a violation of an approach and contact prohibition, dating back to a violent dispute with his then-girlfriend and now his wife, years ago.
Davies is also threatened with failure
“This is a private matter, which you should also keep private,” Nagelsmann said. Bayern’s new manager may have to break his starting unit from the last three games, especially as in addition to Hernandez’s record € 80m purchase, left-back Alphonso Davies, who is strong in Leverkusen, threatens to miss . The 20-year-old was replaced in the 40th minute due to thigh problems. “We hope he’s lucky. He felt a slight pain in his thigh,” Nagelsmann said. “We have to see if it is enough for Wednesday.”
Hernandez, of whom Nagelsmann witnessed the “best performance of the season,” and Davies were solid building blocks in the opening line-ups against Dynamo Kiev (5: 0), Eintracht Frankfurt (1: 2) and Leverkusen. The gala against the desperately overwhelmed Werkself confirmed Nagelsmann’s current recipe for success, which is based on personal consistency. “When you bring in new people, you need structure and stability,” the coach said of his approach.
Its stars share this point of view, at least those who have been on the field from the beginning. According to Joshua Kimmich, the team played “gigantic”, with “speed, depth and goal danger,” the international said. “We have a team,” his colleague Leon Goretzka tweeted, adding a fist as an emoji as a symbol of strength.
Bayern’s appearance impressed the competition
Nagelsmann took the bankers on board early Sunday; after all, FC Bayern led 5-0 after an incredible 37 minutes. Robert Lewandowski initially secured a 2-0 lead (minutes 4 and 30). Thomas Müller (34th) and Serge Gnabry then encountered a double pack (35th / 37th) almost every minute. Patrik Schick’s goal for Leverkusen (55th) was nothing more than a blot from Munich’s point of view.
FC Bayern’s gala performance in Leverkusen also made a strong impression on Portugal. “Fearful Bavaria” was the headline of the specialized newspaper “Record” on Monday. “That scares you!” “O Jogo” described the Bundesliga leaders as a “deadly machine” that was “well oiled” for the match at the Estadio da Luz. Bayern had “crushed” Leverkusen and “rested” at the same time.
Whether with Hernández and Davies or without them, FC Bayern will be the big favorites in the third game of the group stage of the Champions League. Benfica, the club of former national player Julian Weigl, tortured themselves to beat second division CD Trofense 2-1 in the cup at the weekend. “I was expecting more. That wasn’t good even going into Wednesday,” coach Jorge Jesús said.
