Coman back on the ball

Reds begin preparing for Benfica

Following Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Stuttgart the Bavarians have four days to prepare for the Champions League showdown against Benfica. “That's enough time to regenerate and prepare well,” commented Thomas Müller before the quarter-final return in Lisbon. Pep Guardiola split his squad into two groups for Sunday morning's training session. Saturday's starting XI turned in a gentle session including running and stretching exercises as well as treatment. The rest of the squad reported for an intense workout including weight training, sprints and tactical drills.

Away from the rest of the squad Kingsley Coman worked on his comeback. The French youngster has slight muscular problems and took a breather against Stuttgart as a precautionary measure. On Sunday Coman was back on the ball in an individual session, as was Jérôme Boateng, who is fully on track for his comeback, but is not yet fit enough to feature in the squad for Lisbon.
