- Story Text: Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac oversaw a training session in Munich on Tuesday (November 6) as his team prepared for Wednesday's Champions League match against AEK Athens.
In Bayern's last match on Saturday (November 3), Freiburg shocked the Bundesliga champions with an 89th-minute equaliser to earn a deserved 1-1 draw.
Bayern currently lie second in Group E with seven points from their three games, the same as leaders Ajax Amsterdam, while AEK are bottom with no points.
After Wednesday's Champions League match, the Bavarians face Bundesliga top dogs Dortmund on Saturday (November 10).
Last week, the German side announced that Bayern Munich playmaker Thiago Alcantara will be out for several weeks after suffering an ankle injury in their 2-1 German Cup second round victory over amateurs SV Roedinghausen.
The Spain international, who had played in all but one of their 15 matches in all competitions this season, had to go off in the 75th minute after tearing a ligament and suffering further damage in his right ankle following a foul.
