Bayern suffered in the hands of Hoffenheim in a recent game as they slumped to a 4-1, that defeat ended Bayern’s 32-match unbeaten run since last December, a streak that has seen them win the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, Champions League and UEFA Super Cup. On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund dropping all the three points in a clash between FC Augsburg on Saturday with 2 goals to nil, Bavarians could have easily taken advantage of Black and Yellows.

Corentin Tolisso could be replaced by Leon Goretzka who did not start against Hoffenheim in midfield, where they will pair with ever-present figure of Joshua Kimmich. Benjamin Pavard and Manuel Neuer are guaranteed to retain their places in the starting lineup.
