Ribéry on the grass, Boateng in the sand

While Bayern readied themselves for the away game at Ingolstadt, there was also activity at Säbener Straße in Munich. Franck Ribéry, who sustained a thigh injury in training 11 days ago, completed a few laps of the training field on Saturday lunchtime. Carlo Ancelotti had already revealed on the previous day that he hoped the Frenchman would be fit for the Champions League round of 16 match against Arsenal. "But it's a difficult one. We won't take any risks."

Boateng working hard

Jérôme Boateng was also back out on the grass on Saturday. The Germany defender, who had an operation on his chest in December, is currently going through his rehabilitation training on a daily basis. Alongside running exercises on the grass were some increasingly strenuous activities in the sand.
