THE TEAM NEWS

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Having returned to the top of the table last weekend, Bayern Munich can open up a three-point gap if they claim a ninth successive win in all competitions.
  • Coman is expected to return to the squad and his comeback is a welcome one after fellow winger Perisic broke his ankle in training this week.
  • Boateng should shake off the back problem that forced him off against Hoffenheim in the cup in midweek, so it is set to be the same back four once again.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Thiago Alcantara; Muller, Goretzka, Gnabry; Lewandowski

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

Doubtful: Coman (Injured), Boateng (Injured)

RB LEIPZIG

  • It has been a somewhat disappointing start to the year for RB Leipzig, who have taken four points from their three league games and were knocked out of the cup by Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday.
  • Coach Nagelsmann is still without centre-backs Konate, Orban and midfielder Kampl, but he has no fresh personnel concerns.
  • Gulacsi, Mukiele, Adams and Werner are all expected to return to the starting line-up after being rested at Frankfurt, although Angelino impressed on his debut.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Gulacsi; Mukiele, Upamecano, Klostermann, Halstenberg; Sabitzer, Laimer, Adams, Nkunku; Schick, Werner

Unavailable: Kampl (Injured), Konate (Injured), Orban (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Meetings between these two have largely been close and Sunday's top-of-the-table battle is likely to be another tense one. Bayern are in top form but Leipzig have only failed to score in one league game this season. With neither side at full strength defensively, there should be goals at both ends.
