Team News

  • David Alaba is 100% fit again and is a certain starter at left-back.
  • With Holger Badstuber out injured, Dante and Jerome Boateng will start at centre-back again.
  • Luiz Gustavo has missed the final training session and will be replaced by Javi Martinez.
  • Arjen Robben could be rested as well with Thomas Müller switching to the right wing and Toni Kroos filling in in the centre.
  • Carlos Zambrano is still injured and will be replaced by Vadim Demidov at centre-back again.
  • Pirmin Schwegler is back to 100% fitness, meaning Martin Lanig will have to wait for further chances in central midfield.
  • In attack, Karim Matmour is an option to replace Olivier Occean or one of the wingers.
  • Otherwise, manager Veh could field an unchanged team.

Prediction

  • Bayern have recovered very well from their defeat against Leverkusen and are back on track with two impressive wins at Hamburg and against Lille. It remans to be seen how tired some payers will be after another Champions League week.
  • Franfurt are still third in the table, but they have not been in the best of form in the last two games. The players will be extra motivated in a game at the Allianz Arena though.
  • Expect Bayern to dominate from the outset. They are heavy favourites to win.
