Champions boosted by Toni comeback

Buoyed by good news from the medical unit, the Bayern squad set off on Friday afternoon for the weekend Bundesliga clash away to Borussia Dortmund with the firm intention of recording a first league win of the season. “We’re taking the attitude that we’ll come home from Dortmund with four points in the standings,” head coach Jürgen Klinsmann confidently declared.

Ottmar Hitzfeld’s successor was without eight of his squad when it came to picking the side for the season opener at home to Hamburger SV, but Hamit Altintop, Luca Toni and in all likelihood Martin Demichelis will provide additional high-quality options on Saturday. “I’m very, very motivated and absolutely determined to play,” said Altintop, fit again after a foot injury.
