Just hours before kick-off on Wednesday, Bayern Munich confirmed that David Alaba will miss the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid with a thigh injury.
The Austrian dead-ball expert sat out the morning’s final training session and Rafinha is expected to take his place at left-back at the Allianz Arena.
However, Bayern’s French midfielder Corentin Tolisso has shaken off a shin injury and is expected to be named on the bench.
Bayern will be at near full-strength with only long-term injury victims Manuel Neuer (foot), Kingsley Coman (ankle) and Arturo Vidal (knee) missing.
