Bayern are slowly getting back their dominant figure in the Bundesliga as they defeated high flying Schalke quite easily on MatchDay 5 of the Bundesliga and that was without “Robbery”. James Rodriguez was splendid that day. He may earn a recall against Wolfsburg also. David Alaba, Juan Bernat, Manuel Neuer and Thiago remain out for this fixture. Carlo Ancelotti during press conference said Arjen Robben is fit and “can play again”. Thiago and Alaba are expected to be back against Bayern’s crunch clash of PSG in the UEFA Champions League.
Possible line up
Bayern (4-2-3-1) : Ulreich; Rafinha, Hummels, Boateng, Kimmich; Tolliso, Vidal; Robben, James, Ribery; Lewandowski.
Just like previous season this season also it’s becoming a disaster for the Wolves. 5 Bundesliga matches 5 points. 3 goals scored 6 conceded. This can’t be the ideal start for any club, they also became the 1st club to sack their manager this season in the Bundesliga, Andreas Jonker couldn’t fill the expectations of Wolfsburg management now new manager Martin Schmidt has the baton. They will look to change things against Bayern but Head to Head stats and the “5in9” haul of Lewandowski 2years ago on this very day says something else to the Wolfsburg fans. Club Captain Mario Gomez remains out for this one also, on loan from Liverpool Divock Origi will deputise for him. Jeffrey Bruma and John Anthony Brooks also remains out.
Possible line up
Wolfsburg (4-2-3-1) – Casteels; Verhaegh, Knoche, Uduokhai, Gerhardt; Camacho, Arnold; Malli, Didavi, Ntep; Origi.
