Robben and Benatia back in training

After the victory over Hertha more good news followed on Sunday: Arjen Robben and Mehdi Benatia returned to team training after their injuries. “It's great to be on the pitch again,” said Robben, who tore his abdominal muscle five weeks ago during the league match against Gladbach. Benatia suffered a torn muscle during the cup quarter-final away to Leverkusen two and a half weeks ago. Whether the two will be available for the match against Dortmund on Tuesday will be decided at short notice.

FCB Women maintain chance of title

Everything's set for a thrilling finale! Thanks to a clear-cut 6-0 victory over Herforder SV the FC Bayern Women still have a chance to win the German championship. Gina Lewandowski (21), Vivianne Miedema (23), Raffaella Manieri (62), Lena Lotzen (70), Caroline Abbe (82) and Katherine Stengel (86) scored the goals in a comfortable win away to Herford, bottom of the table. With 53 points the Munich women are back up to second spot, sandwiched between VfL Wolfsburg (54 points) and FFC Frankfurt (52), with one matchday left. Frankfurt and Wolfsburg face each other on the last matchday, with Bayern facing SGS Essen at the Grünwalder Stadion on 10 May (14.00 CET).

Australian backup keeper Mitch Langerak will stand between the posts, as he did in the Bundesliga match against Frankfurt on Saturday.
