Bayern Munich received a boost on Monday ahead of their Champions League clash with Inter Milan with striker Mario Gomez and keeper Thomas Kraft declared fit for the last 16 tie.

Doubts surrounded the duo's participation after they picked up injuries in Bayern's 3-1 win over Mainz on Saturday.

Gomez, who has scored 27 goals to become the league's top scorer this season as well as six in Europe, suffered a heavy knock in that game while Kraft was unable to play the second half after clashing with a Mainz player.

"My ankle is not swollen and there shouldn't be a problem for me to play," declared Gomez.

Kraft reported that he wasn't feeling any "ill effects" from Saturday's game.

Wednesday's match is a repeat of the 2010 final in which Inter beat Bayern 2-0.
