Thiago Alcantara and Niklas Süle could both be included in Bayern München's squad for Saturday's DFB-Pokal final against Bayer Leverkusen.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Bayern coach Hansi Flick revealed that he has a full squad to pick from with the exception of Corentin Tolisso and Javi Martinez.

Thiago is set to be back in the squad after overcoming a groin problem while Flick will make a late decision on Süle, who has been recovering from a cruciate ligament rupture since October.

"Other than Corentin Tolisso and Javi Martinez, we have every player available. Niklas Süle will be involved in training and then we will decide if he's in the squad or not," Flick said on Friday.

Meanwhile, Leverkusen will also be without two players, with Paulinho and Daley Sinkgraven both ruled out.

"Except for Sinkgraven and Paulinho, everyone will be there tomorrow. Paulinho underwent surgery today - everything went well," said Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz.

Saturday's DFB-Pokal final will kick off at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on 20.00 CET.
