On Tuesday evening Bayern Munich won away 2-1 against Dynamo Kiev and secured the promotion to the 1/8 finals from the first place in the group. The Bavarians played in a very limited line-up. Due to the quarantine, Joshua Kimmich, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Michael Egzance, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala did not travel to the Ukrainian capital.
Two Bayern players have vaccinated
The authorities of the German champion have decided to suspend the payment of salaries to footballers who are in quarantine. Thanks to this move, the club was to save at least EUR 750,000. The German media reported that the players were considering taking legal action.
However, the daily “Kicker” reported that two of the five rebels in the Bayern team decided to change their minds. Jamal Musiala and Serge Gnabry have already had the vaccine, and the first one has a second dose ahead. The second highest threshold of immunity is to be obtained within two weeks, because he had already contracted COVID-19.

Three unvaccinated players remain
The change of the decision of both players may also be dictated by the reaction to Julian Nagelsmann’s statement. Before the Champions League match, the Bayern Munich coach called for the team to “remain one”, referring to the need to vaccinate and fight for the highest sporting goals.
Joshua Kimmich, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Michael Juice remain purportedly the latest unvaccinated Bayern players. According to the media, at least two out of three are now considering vaccination as well, although they have not yet decided to take this step.
