Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich are set to have France wing Franck Ribery available for Saturday's away game at Hamburg with Brazil's Rafinha and defender Daniel van Buyten also back in training.

Ribery rejoined squad training on Thursday after a knock to his right thigh in Bayern's Champions League win at Lille ten days ago, while van Buyten also trained with the team after recovering from a rib injury, Bayern announced.

Right-back Rafinha has been given the all-clear after injuring his shoulder in Wednesday's 4-0 German Cup win at home to Kaiserslautern.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern are looking to bounce back at Hamburg having suffered their first league defeat of the season at home to Bayer Leverkusen last Sunday with a 2-1 defeat, but have a four-point lead in the league.

Only defender Holger Badstuber, who has an ankle injury, and striker Mario Gomez, who is recovering from ankle surgery, are unavailable for selection.
