THE TEAM NEWS
- Fortuna Dusseldorf will take heart from their 3-3 draw at Schalke 04 last time out when they thrice came from behind, and they will need exactly that kind of spirit again if they are to get anything here.
- Diego Contento has been ruled out after sustaining an injury in a friendly last week, while Aymen Barkok will play for the reserves as he works his way back to full fitness.
- Kenan Karaman, Michael Rensing, Kevin Stoger and Thomas Pledl remain sidelined so there are unlikely to be many changes from the Schalke match.
Predicted line-up (5-3-2): Steffen; Zimmer, Ayhan, Hoffmann, Adams, Giesselmann; Zimmermann, Bodzek, Morales; Kownacki, Hennings
Unavailable: Karaman (Injured), Rensing (Injured), Stoger (Injured), Pledl (Injured), Contento (Injured), Barkok (Injured)
Doubtful: DOUBTFUL PLAYERS HERE (ADMIN)
- Bayern Munich have their swagger back after thumping rivals Borussia Dortmund 4-0, which was enough to convince the club’s hierarchy to leave interim coach Hansi Flick in charge until at least Christmas.
- Kingsley Coman should shake off a knock that he picked up on international duty with France so Flick is set to stick with the side that started against Dortmund.
- Bayern are already through to the last 16 of the Champions League so Flick can afford to pick his strongest side here, although it will be a makeshift back four again with Jerome Boateng completing his ban.
Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Javi Martinez, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Gnabry, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski
Unavailable: Sule (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Arp (Injured), Boateng (Suspended)
Doubtful: Coman (Injured)
