Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Arminia Bielefeld manager Uwe Neuhaus to be concerned about from an otherwise complete squad. Andreas Voglsammer (Hairline crack in the foot) will miss out.
Team News: Bayern Munich
Bayern boss Hans-Dieter Flick has multiple availability issues to deal with. Bouna Sarr (Tendonitis), Leroy Sané (Tear in a joint capsule) and Tanguy Nianzou (Hamstring Injury) miss out here.
We’re thinking that Bayern Munich have the ability to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
However, Arminia Bielefeld could well find it tough to find success in front of goal, although we do think that it’s probable they’ll be scoring here.
We’re predicting a decent 1-3 victory for Bayern Munich at the end of the 90 minutes.
