Thomas Muller will not feature when Bayern Munich meet Borussia Dortmund on Saturday after continuing to suffer from COVID-19 symptoms, Julian Nagelsmann has revealed.

Joshua Kimmich, however, is in contention to return after recovering from the virus, as Bayern bid for a ninth consecutive win over their rivals.

Muller and Kimmich missed Tuesday’s 5-0 Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen after testing positive for the virus last week, but both players have now returned negative tests.

However, Nagelsmann revealed on Friday that Muller was still experiencing symptoms and would miss the trip to BVB, although he was more positive regarding Kimmich’s chances.

“Though they have both tested negative, Thomas Muller still has some cold symptoms, so he won’t be in the squad,” Nagelsmann said.

“Joshua Kimmich, everything looks good. He has no symptoms, he was asymptomatic the whole time.

“He’ll travel with the squad and then we’ll see how far off he is after five days on the sidelines, whether he can feature in the starting lineup.

“It’s a special game and that might mean there are special circumstances, but we’ll see how training goes and how he feels.

“At the end of the day, both are now free from the constraints, which is good news.”
