It's still unclear whether tomorrow's Bundesliga clash between Bayern München and Borussia Mönchengladbach will take place.

Bayern have been hit by a COVID-19 outbreak ahead of the game, with nine of their players testing positive for coronavirus ahead of the Bundesliga restart.

Therefore, it was announced yesterday that the Bavarians have asked the German Football League (DFL) about the possibility of postponing the game.

"I can't answer it 100 percent," said Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann at the pre-match press conference when asked if he believes the game will go ahead as planned.

"It's not in my hands. The DFL and the health authorities decide.

"Our task is to prepare as if the game will take place. At the moment, I assume that I will be on the sideline in the Allianz Arena tomorrow night at 8:30 p.m. It's a big challenge, but from a coaching standpoint, it's also extremely appealing," said Nagelsmann.

On the bright side for Bayern, Corentin Tolisso and Omar Richards have left their quarantine today while Kingsley Coman will go out of isolation tomorrow.
