THE TEAM NEWS

BAYERN MUNICH

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Neuer; Kimmich, Sule, Pavard, Alaba; Tolisso, Thiago Alcantara, Goretzka; Gnabry, Lewandowski, Coman

Unavailable: Perisic (Suspended), Javi Martinez (Injured)

Doubtful:

  • Bayern Munich open the new Bundesliga season as champions for the seventh year in a row looking to extend their run of 11 consecutive home league wins, a run which stretches back to last year.
  • The club secured some much-needed attacking reinforcement with the signing of Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic this week, but he has carried over a suspension from the end of last season and is not available for this match.
  • Javi Martinez is the only injury absentee for coach Niko Kovac, who is likely to name a similar line-up to the one that started against Energie Cottbus in the DFB Cup on Monday night

HERTHA

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Jarstein; Klunter, Rekik, Stark, Mittelstadt; Grujic, Darida, Duda; Lukebakio, Ibisevic, Kalou

Unavailable: Plattenhardt (Injured)

Doubtful: Maier (Injured), Boyata (Injured), Pekarik (Injured), Dilrosun (Injured), Mittelstadt (Injured)

  • Hertha BSC are one of the many Bundesliga clubs beginning the new campaign with a new man at the helm after former reserve team boss Ante Covic replaced long-serving coach Pal Dardai in the summer.
  • Summer signings Dedryck Boyata, Arne Maier, Javairo Dilrosun, Peter Pekarik and Maximilian Mittelstadt have not trained fully this week and will be assessed, while left-back Marvin Plattenhardt is definitely out.
  • Captain Vedad Ibisevic is set to lead the line after scoring twice in Sunday's 5-1 DFB Cup win at Eichstatt, while returnee Alexander Esswein will also be hoping to feature after coming on and scoring.

BETTING ANALYSIS

Bayern may have lost their legendary wing duo Robben and Ribery over the summer but they can still rely on Robert Lewandowski. Last season's top goalscorer has netted in four successive opening fixtures and is always a good bet for first goalscorer, particularly at the Allianz Arena.

BETTING TIP: Robert Lewandowski (First goal scorer)
