Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies has been diagnosed with a “bruised skull” following an incident in Saturday’s Der Klassiker against Borussia Dortmund.

Davies was caught in the head by Jude Bellingham’s foot after the pair challenged for a loose ball during the 2-2 draw at Signal Iduna Park.

The Canada international received treatment for the injury in the first half before being substituted at half-time.

Bayern confirmed on Sunday that the 21-year-old suffered a “bruised skull”, though did not give any timescale for his return to action.

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann was not happy with the challenge and believed Bellingham, who had already been booked, should have received a red card.

Speaking after the game, Nagelsmann said: “He hits him in the face. The rules are clear. There is a suspicion of a concussion. That’s not surprising given the kick in the face.

“Four months ago, we had a training course. They told us that a kick in the face is a red.”
