FC Bayern Munich: Why do Matthijs de Ligt, Serge Gnabry, Mathys Tel and Noussair Mazraoui play with bandages on their hands?

The good and obvious news first: none of the associations prevent players from playing against FC Barcelona – at Mathys Tal it has nothing to do with an injury. The newly crowned youngest Bundesliga goalscorer from FC Bayern wears the bandage, according to information from sports1 just for good luck. From a purely medical point of view, it would not be necessary.

The situation is a little different for the other three players. Before the 7-0 win over newly promoted VfL Bochum, de Ligt tore a ligament in his hand that had to be splinted. Because of the splint, his bandage extends from his hand to half his forearm, just like Gnabry. The offensive man suffered a fractured wrist against VfL Wolfsburg, which also had to be splinted. In the end, the two were in the starting eleven.

Mazraoui will probably be the quickest to get rid of his bandage. What exactly he got is unclear, but apparently no splint is necessary.
