Before this competition, Bayern received bad news when an important pillar of the team, Thomas Muller, tested positive for Covid-19. Specifically, on the club’s homepage, the Bavarian Gray Lobster made the following announcement:
“Thomas Muller has tested positive for Covid-19 after the test today (February 11). He will immediately undergo isolation to ensure the health and safety of himself as well as the entire team.”
Muller is positive for Covid-19
With the positive for the corona virus strain, the German striker will certainly be absent from the FIFA Club World Cup final. Although Bayern is much appreciated compared to the opponent, the absence of Muller will greatly affect the attacking ability of the German representative.
In the semi-finals, Muller was also the name to compete from the beginning. Under coach Hansi Flick, the German player was a very important factor in the way the team played. In Muller’s absence, Leon Goretzka will likely be the name of choice in the final match of the FIFA Club World Cup.
Bayern is naturally the name that receives a higher rating than the opponent because of its class and quality players. They won the treble in the 2019/20 season when they won the Bundesliga, the German national cup and the European Cup.
And will miss the FIFA Club World Cup final with Bayern
This season, they have also won the German Super Cup as well as the European Super Cup. Therefore, if they can win the title at the FIFA Club World Cup, Bayern will complete their spectacular treble.
This is within the reach of the Bundesliga representative. The final between them and Tigres will take place at 1:00 am on February 12 (Vietnam time).
