Doubtful:

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich dropped points for the first time under interim coach Flick last weekend as they lost 2-1 at home to Bayer Leverkusen, despite having 27 attempts on goal.
  • Flick has no new personnel issues so there will not be major changes, but Coman is likely to be recalled in place of Perisic on the left wing.
  • Long-term absentees Sule, Hernandez and Arp remain sidelined, but Cuisance will be hoping to be involved against his former club after playing for the U23s.

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

Unavailable: Sule (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Arp (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Gladbach face a serious test of their title credentials against the reigning champions but they have reasons to be confident. The Foals are in excellent form at home and have taken more points from Bayern than any other Bundesliga club in the last five years, so they can certainly get a result.
