Werder Bremen striker Miroslav Klose says he will be fit to face Juventus on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old Germany international has been out of action for almost a month after damaging shoulder ligaments in January.
He is now ready to make a return and will likely start in Thomas Schaaf's line-up against the Serie A leaders on Wednesday.
"I'll be able to play from the start on Wednesday," Klose told Syker Kreiszeitung.
"I've already fallen on my shoulder during training and felt no ill effects whatsoever.
''As a result I'm not paying any more attention to the injury.''
Bremen now look likely to start the UEFA Champions League clash with their first choice striking duo of Klose and Ivan Klasnic after the latter also reported fit after suffering from a bad cold at the weekend.
