This presumably means that Hernandez will be available for Bayern's Champions' League tie at Benfica Lisbon.
The dpa further reports that Hernandez's lawyers have filed an appeal on the verdict rendered last week; one that actually sentenced the defender to six-months-incarceration. According to the German source, the court will take until October 28th to consider the appeal.
