Match Day Thread: FC Bayern vs. Fortuna Düsseldorf

Alexander Hassenstein

In a day of big matches in the German Bundesliga, FC Bayern travels to Düsseldorf to take on a tough Fortuna squad. The fans are filing into the LTU Arena, and the line-ups have been announced. For FC Bayern:

Mandzukic

Ribery - Kroos - Müller

Gustavo - Schweinsteiger

Badstuber - Dante - Boateng - Lahm

Neuer

For Fortuna D:

Schahin

Kruse - Ilsoe - Du-Ri

Lambertz - Bodzek

van der Bergh - Langeneke - Juanan - Levels

Giefer

So for Bayern, Alaba is on the bench, but he'll get the slow roll-out. Javi Martinez also set to come off the bench, if he plays at all. Pizarro is not even dressed.

This one is live on Gol! TV. A reminder - I might or might not be able to do a recap and video highlights after the match. If I can't, we'll definitely be back tomorrow with a look at the weekend's action.

Viva viva FC Bayern!
