Bayern star Serge Gnabry OUT of PSG clash after testing positive for coronavirus

In a statement, the club confirmed: “Serge Gnabry has tested positive for coronavirus.

“The FC Bayern forward is feeling fine and is now quarantining at home.”

It is the second time Gnabry has been forced to self-isolate due to Covid this season, having also returned a positive result in October.

However, that was later confirmed as a false positive with the winger cleared to return to action.

Gnabry has been in elite form under Hansi Flick this season, scoring ten goals in 34 games in all competitions.

Bayern Munich will also be without star striker Robert Lewandowski who is still missing through injury.

The superstar striker, 32, suffered a knee injury while on Poland duty during the World Cup qualifying win against San Marino.

Lewandowski will now likely miss both legs of the PSG tie – and possibly even the semi-final should Bayern progress.

The Bundesliga champions will face the winner of Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund in the semis.

Meanwhile, PSG will also be missing two big names for the eagerly-anticipated Champions League game.

Both Alessandro Florenzi and Marco Verratti will be absent after themselves returning positive coronavirus tests.
