THE TEAM NEWS

FREIBURG

  • Freiburg's form has tailed off slightly in recent weeks with just one win in their last four games, and defeat here would see them fall further behind the chasing pack.
  • Right-back Schmid is expected to miss out after picking up a knock during Saturday's defeat at Hertha, joining Kubler, Tempelmann, Waldschmidt, Lienhart and Ravet on the treatment table.
  • First-choice goalkeeper Schwolow is not yet fit enough to return so Flekken will continue, while Jeong Woo-Yeong will miss out against his former club as he is on international duty.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Flekken; Gulde, Koch, Heintz; Frantz, Haberer, Hofler, Gunter; Grifo, Petersen, Holer

Unavailable: Schwolow (Injured), Kubler (Injured), Tempelmann (Injured), Waldschmidt (Injured), Lienhart (Injured), Ravet (Injured), Jeong Woo-Yeong (International duty)

Doubtful: Gondorf (Illness), Schmid (Injured)

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich bounced back from back-to-back league defeats in emphatic style on Saturday, coming from behind to thrash Werder Bremen 6-1 at home.
  • Coach Flick welcomes Javi Martinez back from suspension but midfielder Goretzka has been ruled out after going off injured at the weekend.
  • Tolisso remains a doubt having missed the last couple of games while Sule, Hernandez, Arp, Coman and Cuisance remain sidelined, so the bench will be padded out by youngsters again.

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

Unavailable: Sule (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Arp (Injured), Coman (Injured), Cuisance (Injured), Goretzka (Injured)

Doubtful: Tolisso (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Bayern have only lost one of their last 32 Bundesliga meetings with Freiburg, and that was when they had already sealed the title. This time, they are looking to climb back up the table and should have too much for the hosts, although they have struggled for clean sheets on the road this season.
