After suffering a first defeat under Jupp Heynckes against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Matchday 13, Bayern Munich were given a boost on Tuesday as star duo Thomas Müller and Franck Ribery returned to full training.
Müller has been out of action for just over a month, having torn a muscle in the 1-0 victory over Hamburg on Matchday 9, while Ribery suffered knee ligament damage in the 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin on Matchday 7. Both players completed a full training session on Tuesday alongside Rafinha, who has shaken off a minor ankle problem. Elsewhere, David Alaba took part in an individual running session as he continues to recover from a back injury.

Müller and Ribery, both part of Heynckes’ historic treble-winning squad in 2012/13, had made promising starts to 2017/18 before being stopped in their tracks by injury. They could be in line to feature against Hannover at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, as the champions look to bounce back from defeat in Gladbach and extend their three-point lead over RB Leipzig at the top.
