Bayern München coach Hansi Flick has confirmed that Benjamin Pavard will not be in his line-up for Wednesday's Champions League semi-final against Olympique Lyon.

The French international has returned to team training this week after recovering from an ankle injury, but will not be thrown straight into the starting eleven.

"Benjamin has worked hard. We're happy that he's here. We will wait and see how training goes today. He won't start, but he is an option for tomorrow's matchday squad," Flick said at the pre-match press conference.
