THE TEAM NEWS

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich left it late to claim a hard-fought 3-1 win at Freiburg on Wednesday, which nudged them up to third in the table.
  • Midfielder Thiago Alcantara is suspended having accumulated five yellow cards so coach Flick will be hoping Goretzka or Tolisso recover in time.
  • The bench will once again be filled by youngsters from the second string, including 18-year-old Zirkzee who scored with his first touch in the Bundesliga on Wednesday.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Neuer; Pavard, Javi Martinez, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich; Gnabry, Muller, Coutinho, Perisic; Lewandowski

Unavailable: Sule (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Coman (Injured), Cuisance (Injured), Thiago Alcantara (Suspended)

Doubtful: Tolisso (Injured), Goretzka (Injured), Arp (Injured)

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg had to settle for a 1-1 draw at home to Schalke on Wednesday despite dominating the first half, but it was another good performance from the Wolves.
  • Mehmedi will continue to be assessed having missed the last couple of games but coach Glasner has no major personnel worries ahead of the trip to Bavaria.
  • Mbabu should keep his place at right-back after scoring his first goal for the club on Wednesday, with Glasner expected to name an unchanged side.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Casteels; Mbabu, Tisserand, Brooks, Roussillon; Guilavogui; Brekalo, Arnold, Schlager, Joao Victor; Weghorst

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured)

Doubtful: Mehmedi (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Wolfsburg have suffered some heavy defeats against Bayern in recent seasons and have never won at the Allianz Arena. The Bundesliga's best defence will have their work cut out as the champions have scored at least twice in eight of their last 10 league games in Munich, and they will be hard to stop from the off.
