Match Day Thread: FC Bayern vs. Schalke 04

On a cold and blustery day in Munich, FC Bayern takes the pitch with a chance to basically seal the league title: Dortmund lost, Eintracht and Leverkusen were both held to draws, and Bayern can take the lead atop the table to 15 points with a win. We'll see a bit of line-up rotation .. of course, for us, that means a slightly different set of world-class stars. Line-ups:

Dennis Grombkowski

For FC Bayern


Ribery - Kroos - Robben

Martinez - Schweinsteiger

Alaba - Dante - Boateng - Lahm


For S04

Barnetta - Bastos - Pukki

Jones - Hoeger - Neustaedter

Matip - Metzelder - Kolasinac - Hoewedes


I don't know why, but I have a feeling Schalke is going to give us a tough fight today. Bastos is someone we haven't seen much of, and it might take a bit of time for Robben and Gomez to get their timing back. Maybe a late salvage job from Mueller off the bench?

Anyway, check back after the match for a recap and video highlights. Viva viva FC Bayern!
