The first league Bundesliga game of the year is around the corner for Bayern Munich. They will face Jürgen Klinsmann’s Hertha Berlin on Sunday at the Olympiastadion. Injuries are still lingering around the Säbener Strasse, but the latest update coming out of Munich looks a bit optimistic. According to kicker, Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry are reportedly out of the shackles and will be available for the upcoming match. Kingsley Coman, however, has developed the flu and has to stay away from team training for a few more days.
The Polish superstar Robert Lewandowski, who stayed in Munich during the team’s training camp in Doha, is reportedly completely pain-free and is expected to resume team training on Wednesday without any restrictions. Lewandowski’s post-surgery rehabilitation was managed so that he would be in good shape before the commencement of the first competitive games of the new decade.

Gnabry will join team training a day after Lewandowski. After working through an Achilles issue, he is expected to train full-time with the team on Thursday and to be ready to play some minutes on Sunday, as long as nothing affects his health adversely during the training sessions.
Coman, meanwhile, has recovered from the capsule tear in his ankle but will have to wait for a few more days before rejoining the squad as he has developed the flu — the Frenchman has been asked to stay home for a week and to not make any contact with his teammates as the flu is contagious.
