Bayern München coach Hansi Flick has confirmed that Benjamin Pavard will not be available for Saturday's 'Der Klassiker' against Borussia Dortmund.


Pavard resumed training at Säbener Strasse on Wednesday, making his return from a period spent in self-isolation after testing positive for coronavirus, but he isn't ready to come back into the squad yet.

"I can confirm that Benjamin Pavard won't be available. You need a plan to gradually increase your workload after an illness like that. The plan is for him to be fully involved next week."

Bayern will also be without Douglas Costa, Tanguy Nianzou and Corentin Tolisso.
