In a surprise move, Portuguese defender João Cancelo was left out of Bayern Munich’s starting lineup for their recent match against Dortmund. Cancelo has been a regular starter for Bayern this season, making over 20 appearances for the team in all competitions.
It is unclear why Cancelo was left out of the starting lineup, but some reports suggest that it could be due to tactical reasons or a minor injury concern. Despite his absence, Bayern Munich managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Dortmund, with goals from Serge Gnabry and Leon Goretzka.
Cancelo has been an important player for Bayern Munich this season, providing solidity and creativity in the team’s defense. His absence in the match against Dortmund may have surprised some fans and pundits, but the team managed to cope without him and secure an important victory in the race for the German Bundesliga title.
As Bayern Munich prepares for the upcoming fixtures, it remains to be seen whether Cancelo will be back in the starting lineup or if the coach will opt for a different defensive lineup. Nevertheless, the team will be hoping to continue their winning form and maintain their position at the top of the league table.
