The illness kept the centre-back out of the 5-1 thumping of Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Bayern's domestic form has been less convincing, a rollercoaster 3-3 draw at home to Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend leaving the side winless in three Bundesliga matches.

The champion is nine points adrift of leader Borussia Dortmund and only three ahead of seventh-placed Werder.

Kingsley Coman, Thiago Alcantara and Serge Gnabry are all available to return from injury in good news for under-pressure head coach Niko Kovac.
