Bayern Munich head coach Jupp Heynckes has confirmed that Thomas Müller will return to the starting line-up for Saturday's game with Hannover.

The 26-year-old Germany international, who has won 11 of his 13 meetings with the Reds, scoring 10 goals, has been out of action since suffering a thigh strain in the Matchday 9 win over Hamburg.

Heynckes also confirmed that James Rodriguez is in contention after recovering from a head injury sustained in the 2-1 defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach, but will make a decision on David Alaba and Franck Ribery after Bayern's final training session. Spanish defender Juan Bernat (muscular) will not be involved against Hannover, however.
