Team News

  • Jerome Boateng returns from injury to start at centre-back. Daniel van Buyten will probably drop to the bench.
  • With Luiz Gustavo injured, Javi Martinez will probably play in defensive midfield, alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger.
  • Arjen Robben is injured as well, and Franck Ribery is still doubtful. Thomas Müller and Xherdan Shaqiri are the first options to replace them.
  • Mario Gomez will start on the bench.
  • Christian Pander and Konstantin Rausch compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Sergio Pinto returns from injury to start in central midfield, most likely alongside Christian Schulz.
  • With Mame Diouf not 100% fit, Artur Sobiech could get a chance to start up front, alongside Jan Schlaudraff.

Prediction

  • Bayern are in top form and, despite some injuries, have a squad of the highest quality to reach their targets. It remains to be seen how tired some players will be after a Champions League trip to Valencia during the week.
  • Hannover are in solid form after six points from the last three matches. They have played a Europa League game as well and need to recover quickly to have a chance here.
  • Expect Bayern to dominate the game from the start and Hannover to wait for rare chances on the break.
