The Bayern Munich striker has been back in action for the Bavarians since they won the Bundesliga title last season, but the Bayern Munich defender has been on the sidelines for a while with a knee injury.

The 26-year-old, who missed the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against PSV Eindhoven because of the injury, returned to action in their 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg on Wednesday.

He scored once as Bayern won their first Bundesliga title since 1997 and his return is expected to boost the side’s chances of advancing to the knockout stages.

Banks has scored five goals in his last three appearances.
