Berlin:

Dutch winger Arjen Robben and Germany striker Mario Gomez are expected to both be fit for Bayern Munich on Saturday in the German league, despite picking up recent knocks.

Gomez injured his thigh after scoring the winner in Tuesday's 1-0 Champions League qualifier win at FC Zurich as Bayern wrapped up a 3-0 aggregate win over two legs to book their place in the main draw.

"The (club's) doctor says there is no problem for Saturday," said Gomez on the Bayern website and expects to play at Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga on Saturday after recovering from a thigh strain.

The Germany forward's health is of particular concern to Bayern as after Croatia striker Ivica Olic picked up a hip injury last weekend, Munich have just two fit strikers in their squad in Gomez and Nils Petersen.

Robben was on the bench in Zurich after struggling with a back injury.

Bayern doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt says the Netherlands star should be able to face Kaiserslautern, but there is no news when the fragile Dutchman will be completely pain free.

"Arjen can play again on Saturday from the beginning, but the period for his full recovery is not currently defined," said Mueller-Wohlfahrt.
