Bundesliga leaders, Bayern Munich, look to continue their hot streak, when the German champions lock horns with Wolfsburg on Friday night!
Bayern Munich will be seeking to make it seven consecutive victories in all competitions, when they continue their Bundesliga campaign, at home to Wolfsburg on Friday evening.
The German champions are currently top of the German top flight, nine points ahead of second-placed, Borussia Dortmund, while Wolfsburg sit in 11th, with 20 points.
In squad news, Bayern head coach, Julian Nagelsmann, will again have to manage without Corentin Tolisso, Leon Goretzka, Josip Stanišić, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, and Joshua Kimmich.
Meanwhile, Kingsley Coman was withdrawn in the 27th minute of Bayern’s last game, against Stuttgart, after picking up a hamstring problem, so the forward may be replaced by Leroy Sané.
There are unlikely to be any other changes, though, with Thomas Müller once again supporting Robert Lewandowski, while Marc Roca should get another start in midfield.
For Wolfsburg, William, Lukas Nmecha, Luca Waldschmidt, Paulo Otávio, Admir Mehmedi, and Xaver Schlager will be absent for this match.
Jérôme Roussillon, meanwhile, is suspended, so there will have to be a change in defence, with John Brooks poised to start.
Boss, Florian Kohfeldt, is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack, but Renato Steffen is expected to come into the attack, while Yannick Gerhardt is also hoping for a place in the XI.
Despite their absentees, Bayern should still have enough to overcome Wolfsburg. Our prediction is 2-0, with both goals scored in the second half.
Bayern Munich possible starting XI:
Neuer; Pavard, Süle, Hernandez, Davies; Roca, Musiala; Gnabry, Müller, Sané; Lewandowski
Wolfsburg possible starting XI:
Casteels; Baku, Lacroix, Bornauw, Brooks; Vranckx, Arnold; F Nmecha, Steffen, Lukebakio; Weghorst
