Robben back for Bayern; Ribery, Martinez doubtful


MUNICH (AP) -Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben took part in training on Friday, and could play Sunday against Bayer Leverkusen as he recovers from thigh muscle problems.

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes says Robben "is free of pain" but "we'll have to see" whether he can play against Leverkusen.

France winger Franck Ribery and Javi Martinez are both doubtful for the match with thigh and hip problems, respectively. Both injuries were sustained in Bayern's 1-0 Champions League win at Lille on Tuesday.

Also, Mario Gomez continues his long-awaited recovery from surgery on his left ankle. Gomez will take part in some of Saturday's training session, with Heynckes saying his recovery "is looking very good. We'll bring him into team training in doses."
