The international break during the course of the season is often criticised by football fans and managers alike. Not only does this halt club football but it also puts the players in a position whereby they risk an injury and if they are key players, it might affect their club’s objectives.
This international break has surely affected some of Europe’s big clubs and with the season coming to a close soon, not many clubs will be wanting to lose players at this crucial point of the season .
1 Bayern Munich: Bayern Munich have been on hot form since last season and one of the players leading this is Robert Lewandoski. Lewandoski with his goal scoring form has helped Bayern to titles in the last season and they are currently chasing for more titles these season.
In Poland’s game against Andorra on sunday , Lewandoski scored two goals but went down injured and he is said to be out for four weeks which means he might miss both legs of their champions league game against PSG.
2 Chelsea : Chelsea this season can be said to be full of depth but there are some players who can’t be replaced and examples of these sort of players include Mount and Kante. Both players have been key for Chelsea these season and as the race for top four is getting tense Thomas Tuchel will surely be looking to have them at their best.
Kante picked up and hamstring injury while playing for France while Mount suffered a knock but was still able to play for England in their yesterday’s game against Poland.
3 Real Madrid : Real Madrid currently sit third in La Liga but they know there is still a chance they can chase for the title and push for the champions league .
Facing injuries from Captain Ramos , Kroos and Youngster Valverde , Zidane will surely be worried even more when the El Classico is just around the corner .
