Comebacks for Boateng and Coman
Two Bavarians made their yearned-for comebacks in the 3-1 victory over Ingolstadt on Saturday afternoon. Kingsley Coman made the starting line-up after recovering from an ankle injury sustained shortly before the Bundesliga reopener. Jérôme Boateng made his first steps onto the pitch after 82 minutes, his first appearance since the Euro semi-final two months ago. The German Footballer of the Year came on for Douglas Costa, who sustained an injury. Boateng was sidelined with a ruptured muscle bundle in his right thigh.
Milestone for Vidal, Ribéry boasts three assists
Arturo Vidal made his 150th Bundesliga appearance on Saturday, his 54th for FC Bayern. Franck Ribéry turned in an impressive display against Ingolstadt, and the stats confirm this: the Frenchman set up all three Bayern goals. It was the fifth game in which he provided three assists, the last dating back to October 2012, a 5-0 victory away to Düsseldorf.
