However, the hopeless man, Guardiola had to change the original plan, he hopes Ribery can catch up in December held in Morocco World Cup match. Claudio Pizarro looked good to recover, as the seasoned veteran pulled his thigh muscle in late October and began jogging this Friday's training. Pizarro carried out 20 minutes of light training on the sidelines before returning home for rehabilitation. Peruvians will gradually increase their training intensity in the next 7 to 10 days. He will join the team in the near future. Bayern Munich will challenge Dortmund with a 4-point lead away this Sunday morning.
