Blow for Bayern! De Ligt ruled out of crucial Champions League clash

It’s a big night at the Allianz Arena! Bayern Munich take on Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final, a tie many see as a battle between two European giants. But for Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel, there’s a last-minute blow to contend with.

Matthijs de Ligt, who’s been battling a knee injury, has been ruled out of the match entirely, according to German outlet Bild. This is a big setback for Bayern, as de Ligt and Eric Dier had formed a solid partnership in central defence.

Reports suggest South Korean defender Kim Min-Jae will step in to replace de Ligt. Kim is a talented player, but he’ll have his work cut out against a dangerous Real Madrid attack. This unexpected absence could tip the balance slightly in Real’s favour.
