Bayern : Bayern might be favorites for this clash but things aren’t favouring Bayern at present. Players getting injured, losing against Bundesliga clubs, main players accusing club officials for not buying top players. Bad time it is for the Bavarians. But now they should concentrate on their Champions League encounter against Anderlecht and a win against them will surely work as a morale booster. Bayern will have to do with madeshift leftback Rafinha again as Juan Bernat and David Alaba are out injured. Jerome Boateng is also out. Else Bayern have a fit squad to face the Belgian team.
Possible line up – Bayern (4-3-3) : Neuer; Rafinha, Sule, Hummels, Kimmich; Vidal, Rudy, Thiago; Ribery, Lewandowski, Robben.
Anderlecht : The Purple and Whites have started the season badly as they stand on the 10th place of Belgian Jupiler League with only 2 victories in their 6 matches so far they also failed to score in their 3 away matches this season. It is hard to see them scoring against this poor Bayern also. A heavy defeat maybe on the cards for Anderlecht if not a miracle takes place. Though a surprising fact is that Head to Head stats of Anderlecht against Bayern Munich is quite impressive.
Possible line up – Anderlecht (4-3-3) : Boeckx; Najar, Spajic, Deschact, Obradovic; Trebel, Dedoncoker, Hanni; Bruno, Onyekuru, Stanciu.
Head to Head:
Overall – 4 matches.
