THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • Leaders RB Leipzig are the only side with maximum points from the opening three games and victory over the champions could establish them as genuine title contenders this season.
  • Patrik Schick has joined on loan from Roma to provide competition for first-choice strike pairing Timo Werner and Yussuf Poulsen following Jean-Kevin Augustin's departure, although he is a doubt for this match.
  • Coach Julian Nagelsmann switched to a 4-4-2 formation against Borussia M'gladbach but is expected to revert to a back three, meaning Nordi Mukiele is likely to be recalled.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Gulacsi; Mukiele, Konate, Orban; Klostermann, Demme, Forsberg, Halstenberg; Sabitzer; Werner, Poulsen

Unavailable: Adams (Injured), Wolf (Injured)

Doubtful: Upamecano (Injured), Kampl (Injured), Schick (Injured)

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich looked back to their best in their 6-1 thrashing of Mainz two weeks ago, which extended their unbeaten run in the Bundesliga to 17 matches.
  • Recent signing Phillipe Coutinho made his full debut against Mainz but he may start on the bench this time as he only returned from international duty with Brazil on Thursday, meaning Thomas Muller should come in.
  • Leon Goretzka has been ruled out after undergoing surgery on an injury he suffered on international duty so Joshua Kimmich will continue in midfield with Benjamin Pavard at right-back.

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

Unavailable: Goretzka (Injured)

Doubtful:

MATCH ANALYSIS

Bayern have won four of the six Bundesliga meetings between these two sides but Leipzig look a force to be reckoned with this season under Julian Nagelsmann. Both teams are flying high in the table and they are also the highest-scoring sides in the division so expect both to score.
