According to the official press release, Bayern won’t have Vladimir Lucic, Nihad Djedovic, Leon Radosevic, Gavin Schilling, Andreas Obst, and Paul Zipser in the opener against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv.

Furthermore, it’s yet to be decided whether Othello Hunter and Corey Walden will be available for Thursday’s game.

Bayern’s head coach Andrea Trinchieri said that this is an unfortunate situation, but the rest of the team will have to deal with it.

“It’s the first game of a new season, and we would have liked to have come here with a different starting point,” Trinchieri said. “With a team that knows each other, that has played together before, with a full squad.”

“But we have to deal with this situation now and show character to be competitive. I trust my players and will support them against a very good team that just won the Israeli Supercup with ease and destroyed all the opponents,” added the Italian coach.

The game between Maccabi and Bayern will tip-off on Thursday at 20.05 CET.
