Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has been passed fit for the Champions League first-leg tie against Liverpool, despite limping off on Friday evening.
The French international was the star of the show against Augsburg, scoring two and setting up David Alaba for the winner, however, the winger left the field in the closing stages for Niko Kovac’s side.
Boss Kovac initially feared after the game that he would be without the 22-year-old for the trip to Anfield.
However, after further examinations from Bayern’s medical staff, a statement from the club website on Saturday morning (relayed by Goal) revealed the midfielder will be available for selection against Liverpool.
It was the 90th minute in Augsburg when Kingsley Coman left the field after a duel.
After an in-depth investigation by the medical department of Bayern on Saturday morning, it’s luckily all-clear. The Frenchman is thus an option for the first knockout round first leg of the Champions League at Liverpool on Tuesday.
The news is a welcome boost for head coach Kovac, with Coman starting the last six games in all competitions.
Bayern, who currently sit second in the Bundesliga, will be without Thomas Muller for both legs, after his red card against Ajax in the final group stage game.
