THE TEAM NEWS

PADERBORN

  • Paderborn remain two points adrift at the bottom of the Bundesliga after their 2-1 defeat at Hertha BSC last Saturday but they can treat this match as a free hit.
  • Centre-back Sebastian Schonlau could be included in the squad having returned to full training last week and his return will put pressure on current pairing Christian Strohdiek and Uwe Hunemeier.
  • Ben Zolinski should keep his place up front after scoring on his first league start of the season last weekend but Babacar Gueye and Streli Bamba are pacier options in attack.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Huth; Drager, Strohdiek, Hunemeier, Collins; Cauly, Gjasula, Vasiliadis, Antwi-Adjej; Michel, Zolinski

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Schonlau (Injured)

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich eased to a 4-0 victory at home to Koln last Saturday, extending their unbeaten run in the Bundesliga to 19 matches.
  • David Alaba returned to full training on Thursday but he is unlikely to go straight back into the starting line-up, meaning Lucas Hernandez will continue at left-back.
  • Jann Fiete Arp has been ruled out after sustaining an injury in training so 18-year-old Joshua Zirkzee could be among the substitutes again, and Leon Goretzka remains sidelined.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Sule, Hernandez; Thiago Alcantara, Kimmich; Gnabry, Philippe Coutinho, Coman; Lewandowski

Unavailable: Goretzka (Injured), Arp (Injured)

Doubtful: Alaba (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

After thumping Koln 4-0 last Saturday, Bayern face another of the promoted teams and a similar scoreline would not be surprising. The champions are the highest scorers in the Bundesliga whereas Paderborn have conceded 14 goals in five games, so expect Bayern to win and by some margin.
