📋 Team News: Bayern Munich
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (Knee Problems), Paul Wanner (Dental Surgery), Alphonso Davies (Torn muscle bundle), Lucas Hernández (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Manuel Neuer (Fracture of the lower leg) are not available for Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel.
In our view, Bayern could line up in a 4-2-3-1 system for this game featuring Yann Sommer, Noussair Mazraoui, Benjamin Pavard, Matthijs de Ligt, Joao Cancelo, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Leroy Sane, Thomas Mueller, Jamal Musiala and Serge Gnabry.
📰 Team News: RB Leipzig
Out of a mainly available squad, there is just the lone fitness worry for the RB Leipzig manager Marco Rose to be concerned with. Péter Gulácsi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We reckon that Leipzig could decide to begin the game with a 4-4-2 formation, giving starts to Janis Blaswich, Mohamed Simakan, Willi Orban, Josko Gvardiol, Benjamin Henrichs, Dominik Szoboszlai, Konrad Laimer, Amadou Haidara, Emil Forsberg, Christopher Nkunku and Timo Werner.
Our thinking is that RB Leipzig should have enough to score against this Bayern Munich outfit, however that probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re expecting both teams to score in a 2-1 win for Bayern Munich by the conclusion of the game. Should be a good one.
