Bayern Munich's Bundesliga triumph wasn't all good news. Leon Goretzka picked up an injury in the 6-0 win over Gladbach and it's not looking good. With a month to go before the start of Euro 2020, the midfielder faces a race against the clock to return to full fitness ahead of the tournament.

It's a worrying situation for Germany coach Joachim Löw as Goretzka has suffered a tear to his hamstring which will keep him sidelined for around four weeks. It leaves the 26-year-old midfielder little margin for the Euros. Goretzka is a key member of Die Maanschaft - a first choice under Löw but will struggle to return for the team's opening game against France on 15 June. Germany's campaign will continue with group games against Portugal  on 19 June then Hungary on 23 June.
