Arsenal’s tough trip to the Allianz Arena just got tougher, as Hector Bellerin has been ruled out with a groin injury.

Bellerin played all 90 minutes over the weekend against Swansea City, but manager Arsene Wenger said the Spanish right-back will not travel with the team to Munich.

Just 20-years-old, Bellerin has been in fine form for the Gunners, and earned the praise of his manager after their win over Bayern Munich at the Emirates.

Bellerin joins a long injury list for Arsenal, as Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all out.

Wenger has said that Mathieu Debuchy will take Bellerin’s place in the starting lineup, while 17-year-old Jeff Reine-Adelaide will travel with the team as well.

Debuchy will be thrown right into it, as he will be tasked with marking Bayern’s Douglas Costa. Douglas has been terrorizing Bundesliga defenses since his move from Shakhtar, and has been one of the most impressive players in Europe this season.
