Canadian star Alphonso Davies, who suffered a cranial bruise after taking a boot to the head in a sport final weekend, has been chosen to begin Sunday as Bayern Munich hosts SC Freiburg in Bundesliga play.
The 21-year-old from Edmonton had to be helped off simply earlier than halftime of final Saturday’s 2-2 tie with Borussia Dortmund after difficult Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham for the ball.

The injury occurred when the English midfielder, shielding the ball from Davies with his physique, knocked the ball into the air with his proper foot, wanting to pivot and knock it away from the Bayern fullback. Davies’ head acquired to the ball first and Bellingham’s foot linked with the Canadian’s face, not the ball.
Davies then fell to the bottom, clutching his face. He acquired therapy and appeared unsteady as he was helped off the sphere on the eve of halftime. He didn’t see additional action.

Dortmund rallied from a 2-0 deficit with 74th- and Ninety fifth-minute targets.
Davies, who missed the midweek Champions League win over Czechia’s Viktoria Plzen, was within the beginning lineup for third-place Bayern Munich’s match towards second-place Freiburg at Allianz Arena.
