RB Leipzig is expected to play the same team they played in the Europa League game on Thursday. Emil Forsberg is doubtful to play this game for the hosts.
Thiago Alcantara picked an injury in his last game against Besiktas and as a result he would not feature in this game as well. Mats Hummels is also on the bench because of his injury. However, this match may see the comeback of star players like James Rodriguez and Sebastian Rudy back in the starting XI.
RB Leipzig – Gulasci (GK), Klostermann, Upamecano, Orban, Laimer, Keita, Kampl, Bruma, Sabitzer, Werner, Poulsen
Bayern Munich – Ulreich (GK), Kimmich, Sule, Boateng, Alaba, Rudy, Robben, Muller, Rodriguez, Bernat, Wagner
RB Leipzig have only picked up two points from their last four league matches and are struggling with an intense schedule at the moment. They might suffer from fatigue again here, after a difficult Europa League trip to St. Petersburg on Thursday. Bayern Munich will be the fresher side here, as they were able to rotate in their Champions League game against Besiktas on Wednesday. Rotation is expected nonetheless and some players from the bench might want to recommend themselves to the manager here. Expect Bayern to try to dominate the game from the outset and Leipzig to wait for opportunities on the break.
