Good news for Thiago: fortunately, the Spaniard avoided any serious injury in the 0-0 draw with Leipzig. The 28-year-old had to leave the field before the final whistle on Saturday after an 81st minute tackle, but was given the all clear the following day and completed an individual training session on Sunday morning.

It was also a positive morning for James Rodríguez, who has struggled recently with calf problems. On Sunday, the Colombian trained with his team-mates again, despite not being in the starting line-up for the visit to Leipzig.

In addition, the recently injured Javi Martínez and Manuel Neuer continued their recoveries, and like Thiago, completed individual sessions at the performance centre.
