According to the report, 25 players took part in the training, but due to strict hygiene rules, the club is optimistic that the match with Atletico will not be jeopardized.

According to UEFA rules, matches are played when each team has at least 13 professionals (including at least one goalkeeper) available.

The report claims that Bayern now wants to test players even better. Each team member will be tested on Wednesday before boarding the team bus to the stadium.
