Bayern Munich says title chase is still alive

NESHA STARCEVIC AP Sports Writer Published:

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Bastian Schweinsteiger is preparing to come back and Bayern Munich is beginning to talk about the title again despite a seven-point deficit to Borussia Dortmund.

Schweinsteiger is back in training after a right ankle injury although it is uncertain whether he will be in the team this Saturday in the home match against Hoffenheim.

But his return was enough to revive talk about the championship. Bayern all but wrote off its title hopes only a week ago, when it lost 2-0 at Bayer Leverkusen.
