Thiago scored a goal in Bayern Munich’s 4-2 comeback win against Juventus in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg match.

Thiago came on in the 100th minute for Franck Ribery and broke the deadlock eight minutes later with his third goal in two matches. The Spanish midfielder is in exceptional form recently, bagging four goals and an assist in his last seven competitive matches. Bayern Munich travel to FC Koln this Saturday, and Thiago may be in line for more playing time since he was subbed on late in Wednesday’s Champions League match.

Thiago scored two goals in Saturday’s 5-0 win against Werder Bremen.

The two goals were Thiago’s first in the Bundesliga so far this season. He nearly had the hat trick as well, as one of his six shots struck the crossbar in the 48th minute. Although he doesn’t find the goal often, he benefits from playing in front of Manuel Neuer, the league leader in clean sheets. Bayern Munich host Juventus in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg this Wednesday.

Thiago will be sidelined for three-to-four weeks because of a knee injury, the club announced Tuesday.

Thiago has been a steady contributor this season, and his timeline will force him to miss at least one Champions League match, in addition to the Bundesliga time.

Alcantara made just 13 appearances for Bayern in all competitions this season because of a knee injury, managing two goals and one assist in his abbreviated campaign.

The 24-year-old has endured a rough time since transferring from Barcelona two years ago, scoring just four goals with five assists in only 35 total matches during that span. Alcantara is definitely in manager Pep Guardiola's future plans after the club shelled out $25 million for him in 2013, and he will hope to reach closer to his full potential next season.

Alcantara started again and scored in the 28th minute of Bayern Munich's Champions League match versus Porto on Wednesday.

The Spaniard also played 90 minutes for the first time this season, although it came in a disappointing 3-1 defeat. He seems to be fully fit now and should be heavily involved again this weekend against Hoffenheim, if teammates Franck Ribbery and Arjen Robben remain sidelined.

Thiago (knee) returned to training Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

Thiago has been sidelined since suffering a knee ligament injury in October, and while his return to training is a positive sign, it'll likely be a while before he's cleared to play in a match.

Thiago returned to first-team training Thursday, taking a major step in his recovery from a knee injury suffered in March, reports.

Thiago was making progress over the summer before suffering a setback in August. It still seems too early to determine whether he will be available to face Werder Bremen on Oct. 18 when Bayern's Bundesliga schedule picks up again, and while they have been crushing opponents this season, they are still without Bastian Schweinsteiger (knee) and Javi Martinez (knee), putting more emphasis on Thiago's return.

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer said Thiago will not be rushed back from his torn MCL, which he suffered in March, reports. "The operation went well," Sammer said. "It will still take him a while to return, but we're giving him all the time in the world."

Thiago was initially given a six-to-eight week recovery timeframe, which was obviously significantly less than what's transpired. At any event, he won't be ready for the start of the season and he has no clear timetable for return.
