Captain Manuel Neuer could head up a clutch of returning stars to ease Bayern Munich's illness and injury glut in Saturday's Bundesliga trip to Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Germany goalkeeper was expected back in training on Friday following an illness, while Mats Hummels and Sven Ulreich were fully recovered from flu on Thursday.
Leon Goretzka has an ankle complaint and David Alaba a ligament injury, while Franck Ribery is also ill and Arjen Robben and Kingsley Coman still sidelined through leg problems.
