LAGOS, Portugal — Canadian international Alphonso Davies sat out training Wednesday ahead of Bayern Munich’s Champions League quarterfinal against Barcelona.

Bayern, citing an adductor problem, said it was a precautionary measure and Davies, a 19-year-old fullback named Bundesliga rookie of the year in June, was expected to be available Friday.

The two European powerhouses meet at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica in Lisbon.

Bayern is unbeaten in 27 competitive games (26-0-1) and has won its last 18.
