No new injury concerns for Bayern

Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that the Bavarians have no new injury concerns ahead of their trip to Mainz.
Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he expects "everyone" to be fit for Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Mainz, with the exception of the suspended Benjamin Pavard and long-term absentees Manuel Neuer and Lucas Hernandez.

"We are expecting everyone in training," Tuchel revealed at his pre-match press conference today.

"If nothing unexpected happens, everyone is available," the Bayern boss added.

One of the players pushing for a place in Tuchel's starting line-up is Thomas Muller, who came off the bench in Wednesday's 1-1 Champions League quarterfinal second leg draw with Manchester City - just as he did in the 3-0 first-leg defeat.

Asked about his decision to bench Muller and how the 33-year-old handled the situation, Tuchel replied:

"I'm a Muller fan myself. The games against Manchester didn't suit him perfectly. Otherwise he probably would have played. Everything is fine at the moment. I was pleased with his reaction on the training pitch yesterday.

"He handled it in an exemplary manner. But I have to make my decisions, sometimes they are difficult. It's nothing personal. Everyone has to accept the competitive situation."
