Team News

  • Patrick Rakovski will start in goal again, with Raphael Schäfer and Alexander Stephan still out injured.
  • Javier Pinola and Marvin Plattenhardt compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Mike Frantz and Alexander Esswein both have chances to play on the left wing, with Timo Gebhart switching to the centre again.
  • With Holger Badstuber not 100% fit yet and Jerome Boateng injured, Daniel van Buyten will probably start at centre-back.
  • Luiz Gustavo is still doubtful with a minor injury and Javi Martinez could be rested after a trip to Panama with his national team, meaning Anatoliy Tymoshchuk would get a chance to start in defensive midfield.
  • Arjen Robben is injured again and should be replaced by Thomas Müller or Xherdan Shaqiri.
  • Mario Gomez returns from injury to start on the bench.


  • Nürnberg have not been in the strong form they left off from last season so far and need to improve on the attack again. Their defence is more solid than it was at the beginning of this term though.
  • Bayern have won ten of their eleven games so far and are heavy favourites to regain the title this season. They have a very deep squad now and manager Heynckes has a quality pool of players to pick from.
  • Expect Bayern to dominate from the outset. They are heavy favourites to convincingly beat their neighbours.
