Bayern Munich receive much needed boost ahead of the visit to Arsenal

Five first-team players have returned to training ahead of the 1st leg of the Champions League quarter-final battle between Arsenal and Bayern Munich, which will unfold on Tuesday. Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane, Noussair Mazraoui, and Aleksandar Pavlovic have all been present in the last training session before the team heads to London. This is very good news for Thomas Tuchel, as the Bavarian giants have been lacking experience, hunger, and ambition in recent times, which has led to the manager leaving at the end of the season.

Bayern have lost their last two Bundesliga games, suffering an unexpected collapse on Saturday away to Heidenheim after leading 0:2 at half-time, to eventually lose 3:2. They are now on a run of two back-to-back defeats in the German league and trail leaders Bayer Leverkusen by 16 points, with 6 games remaining in the season.

It is a testing period for all Bayern Munich fans around the globe, as the team allows more than 5 defeats in a Bundesliga season for the first time since 2011/12. On top of that, the loss to Heidenheim marked their first defeat at the hands of a Bundesliga debutant since 2000.
