THIAGO PASS FITNESS TEST FOR WOLFSBURG TIE

Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed Thiago Alcantara is fit enough to return to the starting line-up for Bayern Munich’s DFB-Pokal clash with Wolfsburg on Tuesday.

The Spain international is yet to play in 2017 after sustaining a hamstring injury during Bayern’s training camp in Qatar last month.

“Thiago can help us with his quality. He is ready and he can play 90 minutes. He’ll be in the starting line-up,” Bayern’s head coach told a news conference.

“Kimmich trained today [Monday], he is fit and has no more problems. All the other players are in good shape. They’ve recovered well.”

Ancelotti criticised Bayern for failing to show enough solidity in Saturday’s draw and he has challenged his players to improve aspects of their performance against a Wolfsburg side who are out to prove a point following back-to-back losses.
