Lisbon, Aug 12, 2020 (AFP) - Bayern Munich's teenage forward Alphonso Davies missed a training session in Portugal on Wednesday ahead of the Champions League clash against Barcelona because of a "slight groin problem".
Bayern head coach Hansi Flick confirmed the 19-year-old sat out the session as "a safety measure" ahead of the European quarter-final in Lisbon.
The Canadian teenager has had an outstanding season at left-back and having already lost right-back Benjamin Pavard to injury, Bayern boss Flick was taking no risks.
Davies' participation in Friday's clash is not thought to be in danger.
However, a possible alternative would be Bayern's record signing Lucas Hernandez, who cost 80 million euros ($94 million) from Atletico Madrid, but has struggled with injury this season.
