THE TEAM NEWS

HOFFENHEIM

  • Hoffenheim struck late to salvage a point at Borussia Monchengladbach last Saturday and end a run of three straight defeats in all competitions.
  • Top scorer Kramaric returned to training on Thursday after missing the trip to Gladbach, which will be a relief with fellow strikers Belfodil, Dabbur and Adayman sidelined.
  • Rudy started in an unfamiliar right-back role against Gladbach but is expected to revert to his usual midfield position against his former club.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Baumann; Kaderabek, Nordtveit, Hubner, Zuber; Rudy, Grillitsch, Samassekou; Skov, Kramaric, Baumgartner

Unavailable: Belfodil (Injured), Adamyan (Injured), Elmkies (Injured), Dabbur (Injured)

Doubtful: Kramaric (Injured)

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich are unbeaten in 12 games in all competitions (11 wins) after their impressive 3-0 win at Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday.
  • The victory at Stamford Bridge came at a heavy price as top scorer Lewandowski suffered a knee injury which is set to keep him out for four weeks.
  • Coman came off with a strain in midweek and is doubtful so Gnabry is likely to move into a central role with Coutinho coming into the attack.

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

Unavailable: Sule (Injured), Perisic (Injured), Lewandowski (Injured)

Doubtful: Javi Martinez (Injured), Coman (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Bayern will have to do without the Bundesliga's top goalscorer for the next few weeks but they still have plenty of players who know where the net is. There were seven goals when these two met in the cup earlier this month and plenty of goals should be expected again despite Lewandowski's absence.
