Bayern’s star winger has the manager waiting on his return.
Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola will give Arjen Robben every chance to be fit for Saturday's crunch Bundesliga tie with Borussia wholesale soccer uniform Dortmund.
The winger missed last weekend's goalless draw at Borussia Monchengladbach and Wednesday's 3-1 German Cup win at Hamburg with a thigh injury.
But Guardiola hinted that he could be involved for the champions at the Allianz Arena.
"He's a bit better, but it remains to be seen whether he'll feature," said the Spaniard.
Dortmund has finished as runner up behind Bayern for the past two seasons, having previously topped the table twice.
However, Guardiola insists he will be treating this the match just like any other game.
"It's not a final, it's just about getting three more points," added the Bayern boss.
Bayern is currently four points clear at the summit and five ahead of its big rival, but Guardiola has urged his side to respect its opponents.
"Dortmund are an impressive side, we have to be wary of their quick replica soccer Jersey counterattacks," he added. "There is no doubt Borussia Dortmund will be dangerous if we lose possession."
Dortmund has already beaten Bayern 2-0 in the German Super Cup at the start of the season and prevailed 3-0 at the Allianz Arena towards the end of last term.
The summer signing is now free to make his debut for his new club and could take to the field against Queens Park Rangers after the international break.
New Manchester United signing Marcos Rojo has finally been granted a UK visa, the Premier League club Thailand Soccer Jersey confirmed.
The Argentina international joined the club for 16 million pounds from Sporting Lisbon earlier this summer but has yet to feature for Louis van Gaal’s side, missing all four of wholesale soccer uniform the club’s competitive fixtures so far this season.

But Rojo is now available for selection and will be able to make his debut in the club’s clash with QPR at Old Trafford on Sept. 14.
The UK Border Agency has agreed to grant #mufc defender @MarcosRojo5 a visa and he will therefore be available to face QPR on 14 September.

Rojo, who featured for Argentina in its 4-2 win over Germany on Wednesday, could make his United debut alongside Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao, who both joined the club on transfer deadline day.
It is understood that the hold-up in the 24-year-old receiving his work permit was because of an ongoing criminal investigation in his homeland in 2010, though Rojo reportedly denies any wrongdoing.
Louis van Gaal’s men were two goals clear, twice, only to allow Soccer jersey supplier Leicester City to fight back and claim a 5-3 win in dramatic circumstances at King Power Stadium.
Louis van Gaal spoke immediately after the damaging 5-3 Premier League defeat to Leicester City of “giving the game away”. If you think that assessment of things detracts from the effectiveness of Leicester City’s collective performance then consider that the home side had five attempts on target and scored with all five. Nigel Pearson’s side was efficient in front of goal, no doubt, but cannot be said to have had enough of the game to have outclassed United. No, United did that to itself.
“We created a lot of chances and made superb goals but a game lasts 90 minutes” Van Gaal said. “You have to do it over 90 mins, not 60. It was not enough today.”
From individual errors to an absence of responsibility to lapses in concentration, there was little to cheer in this United display and, instead, only evidence that the team cannot simply rely on all-star forwards to keep earning points. While the standard of attacking play was approaching sensational at times, elsewhere United was anything but. The visiting side gave away two penalties and another on the break. It conceded goals in clusters and every time it looked like the team was about to get away from the newly-promoted side, it tripped up. That is the chief question that Louis van Gaal now must solve – how to stop the self sabotage.

David Nugent’s penalty just after the hour mark went a long way towards deciding the outcome of this match and was a prime example. Had Rafael not bundled Jamie Vardy over – after the Leicester attacker himself nudged the fullback – then it is possible that United would have held firm, held the ball and held out for the win. That one single incident can precede a meltdown, from 3-1 up, on this scale demonstrates just how arduous a climb it will be for Manchester United to scale its former heights.
United was two goals up, twice, and on both occasions let Leicester back into the game. At 2-0, and playing as well as the team was, it should have been sealed. Instead, within seconds of going two goals up, United was pegged back. And after making it 3-1 and seemingly putting the game beyond the reach of the home side through Ander Herrera, it took one penalty kick to provoke the sort of collapse that was once unthinkable in a United side.

“You never expect that [losing 5-3] when you are 3-1 ahead,” Van Gaal admitted. “Then you have to kill the game, keep possession, but we could not do that.
“And then of course we gave it away with penalties and we cannot win a game when we do that.”
While there also will be debate over whether Vardy had allowed the ball to cross the line for Leonardo Ulloa’s first goal that would all distract from the fact that United was 2-0 up and cruising. Not only that but the team was playing its best football of the season.
On one hand, the club boasted Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and Angel Di Maria playing exceptionally and making Leicester City look like a side which had indeed just arrived back from the Championship.
Angel di Maria’s goal was appropriate for Britain’s most-expensive player. It was a goal in the 60 million pound class bracket. United was proving to be a class above Leicester collectively, a lofty position the team could not honestly say it had occupied so far under Van Gaal’s reign. That is where United expect to be; too good for promoted teams and certainly for teams which has not beaten it at home since 1985.
On the other hand, United was overwhelmed.
That’s five games played in the league – only one won – and the promise hinted at during the 4-0 win against QPR last week looks a long way off now. Manchester United has dropped points in so many different ways so far this season that it seems Louis Thailand Soccer Jersey van Gaal and his team are incapable of heading off mistakes without experiencing them first.
There are questions of know how and game management for United’s players as being two goals up is a failing of the heads as much as it is the legs.
The striker mentioned Manchester United during the team’s defeat to Leicester City and subsequently received several abusive replies.
Merseyside Police are set to investigate after Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli was subjected to apparent racial abuse on Twitter.
The Italian forward took to the social media website on Sunday to tweet his thoughts on rivals Manchester United's shock 5-3 defeat to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
"Man utd … LOL," the 24-year-old wrote.
Man utd … LOL
— Mario Balotelli (@FinallyMario) September 21, 2014
The post attracted a number of abusive replica soccer Jersey replies, many of which were then wholesale soccer jersey deleted – though a number were copied and shared by eagle-eyed users. And Merseyside Police have revealed through their own official Twitter account that they will launch a probe into the abuse.
"We can confirm officers are looking into offensive comments made on Twitter about Mario Balotelli earlier today," they wrote.
Balotelli has been the victim of abuse on a number of occasions throughout his career.
The Italy international faced offensive chants during Milan's clash with Roma in May 2013 and hit back at one fan for describing him as "not Italian" following his country's 2014 World Cup exit.
Three stars will be missing for Manchester City’s trip to Hull.
Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed Manchester City will be without Stevan Jovetic, Fernando and Samir Nasri at Hull City wholesale soccer jersey on Saturday.
Jovetic is continuing his recovery from a hamstring injury suffered in the 1-0 defeat to Stoke City last month, while Fernando has been troubled by a groin problem and also did not feature against Chelsea last weekend.
Nasri, an unused substitute for the 1-1 draw with Jose Mourinho's men, has a groin issue of his own, but Sergio Aguero and David Silva are both fit despite picking up respective knee and ankle knocks.

"Jovetic and Thailand Soccer Jersey Fernando are out," Pellegrini told a news conference on Friday. "They will be ready next week.
"Nasri also has a groin problem, [but] Aguero and Silva are okay."
Pellergini is expecting a tough test against Steve Bruce's side, but hopes to see a repeat of the performance that saw City triumph 2-0 in last season's corresponding fixture, despite the early dismissal of Vincent Kompany.
"Hull is a difficult team to play away," he added. "Last season, we played really well and we won.
"I hope it will be the same."
The midfielder is headed back to the Bundesliga after a failed stint in England.
Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby has joined Hamburg on a season-long loan deal.
The Bundesliga outfit was eyeing a move for the German back in August, with Hamburg retaining the option to make the move permanent at the season of the season.

The 23-year-old spent the replica soccer Jersey second half of last season at Fulham after falling out of favor under both Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood and has been afforded just one substitute appearance under new boss Mauricio Pochettino this term.
Cristian wholesale soccer jersey Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli are currently ahead of Holtby in the pecking order and he was an unused substitute in recent Premier League clashes with QPR and Liverpool.
The final weekend of the 2014 MLS regular season is almost here, and all three Pacific Northwest teams are playing in high-stakes games.
Usually, this column discusses a topic relating to one or more of the Cascadian teams and has short previews of their upcoming matches at the end. This is not a usual week. With all three teams playing hugely important games this weekend, this week's column will be given over to in-depth previews. At least one of the region's teams will be celebrating after this final round of matches, maybe even two. But someone is guaranteed to be unhappy.
SEATTLE SOUNDERS – LA GALAXY
CenturyLink Field – Saturday, Oct. 25 – 11:30 AM PT – NBC
This is essentially a cup final to decide the winner of the Supporters' Shield and the top seed in the Western Conference. Needless to say, it's also hugely important on the basis of pride. LA and Seattle are the two best teams in Major League Soccer, and probably its two flagship clubs as well. Bruce Arena and Sigi Schmid are the league's most successful managers, but they'll still want to get one over on the other and claim some silverware.
Seattle holds the advantage as it's playing at home and would win the Shield with a draw, thanks to MLS's use of the "more wins" tiebreaker. LA needs a win, but despite the Sounders' record this year and the intense reputation of the Seattle crowd, that's certainly achievable: the Galaxy were stellar in a commanding 3-0 win on July 28, and LA fans will be quick to remind their Emerald City counterparts of the "refund game" back in 2010, when the Sounders allowed four goals against the Galaxy and scored none in reply.
Expect offense from this contest, and plenty of it. LA and Seattle are the two highest-scoring sides in the league. Seattle gives up goals almost as readily as it scores them, and is tied for the most allowed of any team currently in wholesale soccer jersey a playoff spot, while the Galaxy's best-in-MLS defense is considerably weakened by the suspension of designated player Omar Gonzalez.
There's a chance offensive history could be made in this game: Robbie Keane is just one assist short of being the league's third-ever "15/15" player, while the same would make Landon Donovan the first 20-assist player since Carlos Valderrama in 2000. Keane and Seattle's Obafemi Martins are among the favorites for the MVP award, and a clutch performance in a high-pressure game like this could just sway some voters.
Historically, the Galaxy have an edge here. In 20 all-time regular-season meetings, they've beaten the Sounders nine times, losing six, with five draws. replica soccer Jersey Sigi Schmid's team hasn't won a regular-season match against LA since 2012.
FC DALLAS – PORTLAND TIMBERS
Toyota Satium – Saturday, Oct. 25 – 5:30 PM PT – MLS LIVE
Although they flirted with irrelevance at times this season, the Portland Timbers go into the final weekend of the regular season still in the playoff hunt. Trailing Vancouver by by one point, equal on wins but with a goal difference advantage of six, Portland's task is to get a better result than its BC rival.
FC Dallas won't make that easy. The Hoops have a solid offense (55 goals scored) and a relatively effective defense (43 goals allowed), but statistics don't tell the whole story. Dallas is on a strong run with three wins from the last four games, and has exactly the type of high-pressure, athletic counterattack that could cause Portland's rickety back line serious problems. Liam Ridgewell is a good organizer of the unit and has been impressive since joining in the summer, but he can't work miracles in a constantly-changing group. The loss of Norberto Paparatto to yellow-card accumulation suspension is yet another headache in that department. Midfielder Will Johnson's season-ending injury strips the Timbers of an elite upfield ball winner.
Not all hope is lost for the Rose City faithful, however. As generously as Portland gives away goals, it has scored them at an even higher rate and has the third-best offense in MLS. Fanendo Adi, Maximiliano Urruti and Gaston Fernandez have all put up good numbers in limited minutes, while Rodney Wallace is hitting his form after working back from serious injury. But the most important offensive weapon at Caleb Porter's disposal is Diego Valeri. The Argentine virtuoso decides matches on his own – he leads the team with four game-winning goals – and his 11 goals and 14 assists are the only double-digit Timbers marks in those categories.
Having met twice already this season, Dallas has had the better results. It won 2-1 in Texas on March 29 and drew 2-2 in Oregon on June 11. Dallas' Blas Perez collected two goals and an assist in the meetings.
VANCOUVER WHITECAPS – COLORADO RAPIDS
BC Place – Saturday, Oct. 25 – 7:00 PM PT – TSN2, MLS LIVE
The Whitecaps have their own playoff destiny in their hands, and couldn't ask for an easier opponent against which to finish their season. Colorado has been 17 shades of terrible in the second half of the year. The Rapids last won on July 25, and are on a staggeringly awful 0-11-2 run since.
Everything is set up to favor Vancouver, which leads Portland by a single point. It plays at home against one of the league's doormats, while the Timbers are away to a dangerous Dallas side looking for a win to avoid the play-in game. What's more, Portland's game will end shortly after Vancouver's starts, so the Whitecaps will know exactly what result will send them into the playoffs. The bare minimum: just match what the Timbers do. If Portland loses, Vancouver's in. If Portland draws, Vancouver just needs a point of its own. If both teams win, Vancouver goes on. It would be difficult for 'Caps fans to pick a friendlier scenario for such a crucial fixture.
While Vancouver has a competent defense, and is currently on a three-game shutout streak – it could be in trouble if Colorado improbably takes a lead. The Whitecaps have scored just 41 goals, the fewest of any confirmed or potential playoff side. That shortcoming was painfully apparent last week, as the Whitecaps labored to a scoreless draw against the cellar-dwelling San Jose Earthquakes. Despite six corner kicks and even possession, they put just one shot on goal against the West's last-place team.
The team is heavily reliant on the offensive production of playmaker Pedro Morales, who has 10 goals and 11 assists this season. Morales has taken 99 shots, almost twice the number attempted by the next-most common shooter, Kekuta Manneh with 53. That said, Sebastien Fernandez has shown the ability to come up with clutch goals, with three of his five on the year coming as game-winning strikes.

Gareth Bale's hip injury will keep him out of Real Madrid's trip to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League.

Negredo is still recovering from the broken metatarsal he suffered in July but has reflected fondly on his sole season with City, in which the club won the Premier League title.
“Today I say goodbye to a magnificent club,” the 29-year-old wrote in an open letter. “I want to thank the club for helping me become a better footballer and for making me and family feel at home during my time here.
“About a year ago Manchester City, a club that for always will remain in my heart, gave me the amazing opportunity to play in England. And for me winning the Premier League, the Capital One Cup and scoring 23 goals in a season is a dream come true.
“After this year I can only say thank you to the club, to the fans that have supported me since the first day I wore this jersey and of course thank you and good luck to my team-mates, who helped me settle in since day one, not only as team-mates, but as friends.
“Today I say goodbye to Manchester City but I take with me many memories, lessons and great moments that will live with me forever. It has been one of the best years of my football career.
“At last I want to wish Manchester City many success wholesale soccer uniform for the future and thank the club for giving me the opportunity to sign for Valencia, a club to which I want to give back all the trust they have given me and start a new season with many success.
“Thank you with all my heart.”
Negredo joined City from Sevilla in July 2013 and hit the ground running, scoring 23 times in all competitions by late January.
A shoulder injury hampered his progress, though, and he endured a 16-game goal drought to conclude the season.
