Neuer and Thiago sit out final training

On Monday afternoon the Bayern squad gathered at the Säbener Strasse facility for their last training session prior to the Champions League semi-final return against FC Barcelona. Pep Guardiola took charge of a group comprising 23 players. Manuel Neuer and Thiago were not among them, but there are no grounds for concern as the pair reported to the performance centre for treatment on minor knocks and are fit to play on Tuesday. Out on the pitch, Sebastian Rode made a first squad appearance since suffering a sprain.
