Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti has said Thomas Muller, Douglas Costa and Manuel Neuer will be available to face Real Madrid in the Champions League next week.

Neuer and Costa missed Bayern's 6-0 Bundesliga win over Augsburg at the weekend with injuries.
Speaking at a news conference before the game at Hoffenheim on Tuesday, Ancelotti confirmed that Muller and Neuer would not play in that game but said "everything is going according to plan."
"Neuer began individual training today, he doesn't have a problem," the coach said. "Neuer will be 100 percent ready to face Real Madrid.
"Muller was on the end of a dangerous foul against Augsburg and will begin individual training on Wednesday. We'll have to see if he's fit for Borussia Dortmund [on Saturday], but we are sure he'll be available for Real Madrid."
Brazil winger Costa is also not considered a doubt for the Champions League quarterfinal first leg in Munich and Ancelotti said: "He'll definitely make Real Madrid.
"He'll be back training with the team on Wednesday. Everything is going to plan. He's done well today, training individually with intensity, and we are pleased."
With his side 13 points clear in the Bundesliga, Ancelotti said midfielder Thiago Alcantara would sit out the trip to third-placed Hoffenheim.
Asked about transfer links to Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, he said: "Of course there's no doubt he's a good player, but it's just a rumour.
"We are solely focused on our game , we have no time to think about rumours."
