As Arsenal’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) quarterfinal showdown with Bayern Munich edges closer, the German giants have been dealt an injury blow.

It is just 20 days until the sides meet at the Emirates Stadium in the first leg and, just days after news broke of a possible injury to star striker Harry Kane, exciting defender Sacha Boey has also suffered an injury and looks to be a major doubt for the game, in a big blow for Bayern Munich.

Boey has, according to his club, suffered a muscle tear in his left hamstring which will leave him sidelined “for the coming weeks,” meaning that he is in a race against time to be able to play against Arsenal in at least the first leg of the tie.

The Frenchman only joined Bayern Munich in the January transfer window, in a £30m deal from Galatasaray, and has so far made just two appearances for the Reds, owing to another muscular injury that he suffered last month.

The 23-year-old joins Bouna Sarr, Raphaël Guerreiro and possibly Kane on Bayern Munich’s injury list, which will naturally be a boost for Arsenal ahead of the tie next month.

Some fans had suggested that Boey would be Bayern Munich’s answer to suppress Gabriel Martinelli, though that duty now looks likely to fall on the doorstep of another player because of this injury, which will be a big blow for the German side.

Arsenal are not without their own injury woes ahead of the game however, with key defender Gabriel Magalhaes withdrawing from international duty with Brazil due to an Achilles tendon injury, while Bukayo Saka is also not involved in full training with England.
