‘Jinxed’ Bayern hit by Laimer and Kimmich injury layoffs: reports

BERLIN: Bayern Munich are counting the cost of Wednesday’s hard-fought 1-0 win over Union Berlin, with German media reporting midfielders Konrad Laimer and Joshua Kimmich are set for injury layoffs.
Laimer looks set to miss between six and eight weeks with a calf injury, German tabloid Bild reported on Thursday.
Laimer was replaced in the 87th minute of Wednesday’s win, which took the German champions to within four points of leaders Bayer Leverkusen.
After the game, coach Thomas Tuchel said he was “worried” about the midfielder’s injury.
