As a safeguard Upamecano, Sane, Nianzou, and Davies all trained separately after the group warm-up at Säbener Strasse.
The Bavarians enjoy a six points lead at the top of the table before the next league fixture on Saturday’s match at Cologne.
The comeback of this group of players will be a boost to the team and Nagelsmann will be very pleased as many of the players who missed Friday’s match were core members of the Starting 11.
COVID-19 has been a huge problem across European teams and is affecting the playing schedule and also the health of the players in a huge way.
Many managers have to play their reserve players or youth academy players in their starting 11 to fill in the gap of the missing players.
