It comes a day after Leroy Sane and Dayot Upamecano tested positive as the Bundesliga leader prepares to face Borussia Monchengladbach in its first game after the winter break on Saturday (AEDT).

Lucas Hernandez and Tanguy Nianzou also returned positive tests this week.

Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, Corentin Tolisso and Omar Richards were also unable to report for training after they tested positive.
