Can Bayern Munich avoid a letdown against Gladbach?

Earlier today, the status of Bayern Munich head coach Thomas Tuchel was still in major doubt ahead of the team’s Bundesliga clash with Borussia Mönchengladbach this weekend.

Tuchel fell ill earlier this week with the flu and has not been able to shake it as of yet. Sky Sport journalist Kerry Hau initially reported that the situation is still up in the air:

Thomas Tuchel has still not recovered from his flu-like infection. It is questionable whether he can sit on the bench against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday. His assistant Zsolt Löw will lead the final training session on Friday afternoon. #FCBBMG @SkySportDE

Hau checked back in later, though, to say that Tuchel had received the “all clear” to coach this weekend:

The all-clear for Thomas Tuchel: He feels better and, after consulting with Christoph Freund, will now lead the training session in the afternoon and will also be available against Borussia Mönchengladbach. @SkySportDE

Tuchel was later pictured at the training session:
