Leon is looking a little better, Javi will probably not make it. If not for the first game, then maybe for the second."

Bayern are set to face Al Ahly on Monday.

Thomas Muller, who contributed to Coman becoming the first player in Bundesliga this season to reach double figures for goals and assist, said: "

You could tell it would be fiercely contested. Pal Dardai's team fight for every square centimetre,"

"We should definitely have scored one or two more goals, so it was a close run thing in the end.

"You can't celebrate in every game. What is striking is that the clean sheet is becoming more and more common."
