Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Matthijs de Ligt and Leon Goretzka all returned to training for Bayern Munich today but the Rekordmeister were without Leroy Sané.
The 27-year-old scored the opening goal in Bayern’s 4-4 friendly against RB Salzburg but had to sit out due to gastrointestinal problems. It’s unclear as to whether or not Sané will feature against RB Leipzig.
With the exception of Sané and long-term absentees Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez, Bouna Sarr, Noussair Mazraoui and Sadio Mané, Julian Nagelsmann had almost every player available.
RB Leipzig are 13 games unbeaten across all competitions under Marco Rose, who replaced Domenico Tedesco earlier in the season. Just six points separate the two teams as RB Leipzig host the leaders on Friday night.
With just days until the resumption of the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich are still courting a replacement for Manuel Neuer with the leaders in concrete negotiations with Borussia Mönchengladbach regarding Yann Sommer (34).
