Holger Badstuber could start in Spain after featuring only as an unused substitute in the draw at Nurnberg at the weekend.
Mario Gomez was thought to be fit enough to return to the bench at the weekend, but he did not make it. He could, however, make his return from injury for this game.
Ribery and Lahm will both return to the starting lineup.
First hosts second in Group F here at the Mestalla, with only goals conceded separating the sides. Both are on 9 points, 3 ahead of BATE Borisov who will hope to pick up a win at home to Lille in the early kick off, and victory for either side here could go a long way towards qualification for the knockout stages.
Bayern ran out 2-1 winners at the Allianz when these sides met in September, but Valencia's season has seen them play awfully on the road (1 win from 8 in the league and European competition), and pick up great results at home (7 wins and a draw from 8).
Bayern will be slight favourites given their record in the league so far this season, but they will have to be careful not to underestimate their opponents, who could well spring a surprise. There should be plenty of goals in this one, with both sides extremely dangerous in attack but with flaws defensively.
