Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has included Mario Gomez in his squad for the upcoming Champions League Group F match away against Valencia.
The prolific striker sustained an ankle injury at the start of the 2012-13 campaign, and has been out of action ever since due to his physical problems.
However, he has now been given the green light to make his comeback, and makes the Bayern squad for the first time this season for a competitive game.
Gomez already featured for the full 90 minutes in a friendly last week, but is still to make his first official appearance of the season.
Meanwhile, Franck Ribery has made the squad for Tuesday's match against Los Che as well.
The Frenchman missed this weekend's Bundesliga draw against Nurnberg due to a rib injury, but returned to the training pitch on Sunday and is raring to go again.
