Sule will be hoping for another title win with Bayern Munich this season despite his absence

After suffering the same fate as Memphis Depay on Matchday 8 of the Bundesliga season, Niklas Sule will likely miss the Euros in the summer and therefore miss the tournament with Germany. The defender's absence has been a major blow for Bayern Munich this season who have struggled defensively for large parts of the campaign which has seen the Bundesliga title race become more competitive than ever.

The Bundesliga champions have missed the German's ability on the ball and aerial dominance with a passing accuracy of 94% and an aerial duel success rate of 81%, making him one of the most accomplished defenders in the Bundesliga. It's Sule's calmness on the ball that Germany will potentially miss the most in the summer when they are forced to break down low block defensive shapes and the absence of the former Hoffenheim man could see them struggle to do this as well as dominate in the air.

What's more is that a lack of leadership at the back could cost Germany who will be eager to make up for an early exit in the 2018 World Cup by going all the way in the summer tournament.
