The Greuther Furth manager Stefan Leitl has a full complement, with no fitness worries to speak of before this game thanks to a fully healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann has to choose a team with limited availability. Corentin Tolisso (Calf Problems), Kingsley Coman (Heart Condition) and Sven Ulreich (Ruptured intraarticular ligament initiation in knee) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Bayern Munich have it within them to be in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of their chances.
At the same time, Greuther Furth will not find it easy scoring goals although we think that they will probably end up being dangerous at times, too.
We’re predicting a controlled 1-3 winning margin for Bayern Munich by the conclusion of the game.
