Bayern trained in groups of five but without any contact, as did Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg.

The German league has been suspended since March 13th until at least April 30th in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Bayern, who had been engaged players in cyber training for the past two weeks, said all hygiene measures were “strictly observed” during their return to physical training and no members of the public were present.

The champions were top of the league at the time of the season being stopped, four points clear of Borussia Dortmund.

It is yet to be known whether or not the Bundesliga would resume by the end of the month as planned or be extended again.
