After 35 minutes of playing time, Marquinhos had to leave the Allianz Arena pitch suffering from rib pain after getting knocked in the zone back in the weekend in the league win against Nantes.

He was replaced by Nordi Mukiele, who played makeshift CB for about 10 minutes before halftime and never returned to the pitch after the break, also substituted before the start of the second half by El Chadaille Bitshiabu.

Bitshiabu completed the second half and finished the game on the pitch, but it's been reported that he also suffered a knock throughout the last 45 minutes, and he's now suffering from a calf crutch.
