Werder Bremen will have to manage without their leading goalscorer when they travel to Munich to face reigning German champions Bayern tomorrow evening.
The 29-year-old picked up a knock in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Schalke 04 that is still causing him problems.

“Niclas Füllkrug won’t be travelling to Munich with us. He’s still having problems with his back,” Werder coach Ole Werner told reporters at a press conference today.

However, Füllkrug should be ready for the World Cup if called upon by Germany coach Hansi Flick, with Werner expecting him to return this weekend.

“He’ll probably be available again against Leipzig,” noted the Werder coach.

Füllkrug is yet to make his debut for Germany, but is seen as a candidate for the World Cup squad because of his great form this season (10 goals in 13 Bundesliga games).
