Since Wednesday, the FC Bayern squad have been based in Grassau. The town near lake Chiemsee is the location for their quarantine training camp, a requirement from the DFL for the final two matchdays of the Bundesliga season. The newly crowned champions held their first training session on the pitch at midday on Thursday, against an idyllic mountain backdrop.

Tolisso with the group

Also involved was Corentin Tolisso. The French midfielder underwent surgery following a tendon tear in his left thigh in mid-February, and has been working on his comeback since. Meanwhile, Robert Lewandowski did a slightly reduced session in order to manage his workload.

The Bayern boys worked up a sweat in the session despite the cool temperatures and rain. After the warm-up, some coordination exercises, sprints, tackling and finishing were on the programme, before the team were tasked with some intensive match situation drills.

FCB chasing records in final two games

So, Bayern's preparations for the final two games of the 2020/21 season are in full swing. On Saturday, the champions visit Freiburg, where they'll be looking to continue their pursuit of records. No one more so, of course, than Lewandowski, who is just one goal away from Gerd Müller's long-standing record of 40 goals in the 1971/72 season.
