Jamal Musiala to miss a couple of games due to Covid-19

After testing positive to covid-19, Bayern Munich confirms Jamal Musiala is isolating at home and in good condition.

Jamal Musiala has tested positive for coronavirus, Bayern Munich confirmed in a statement on their official website on Monday.

The German international had played the full minutes of the draw against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. But Musiala would now appear to be a major doubt for the midweek UEFA Champions League match against Viktoria Plzen.

The club statement added: “Jamal Musiala has tested positive for COVID-19. The FC Bayern forward is doing well and is currently isolating at home.”

Musiala is the latest in a series of Bayern players to contract COVID-19 over the past month.

Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka were withdrawn from the Germany squad last month due to Covid-19, before Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller also later returned positive tests.
