When you destroy a team the quality of Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League, what do you do for the follow-up? For Bayern Munich, a match at the Allianz Arena against VfB Stuttgart is in the cards. Can the Bavarians make it two wins in a row?
Stuttgart coach Alexander Zorniger has stated that we won't see a repeat of last weekend when Bayern took on Eintracht Frankfurt. The visitors plan to try and play against FC Bayern instead of bunkering in the defensive third and hoping for a result. However, with Daniel Ginczek and Martin Harnik both out with injuries, the match is going to definitely be a tough one to take.
After returning to the 18 man squad against Arsenal, it's very likely that Holger Badstuber finally sees action on the field against Stuttgart. When healthy and in-form, Badstuber is the logical choice to partner Jerome Boateng at centerback. He has remarkable composure on the ball, and his left foot perfectly compliments Boateng.
Once the lineups are released, this thread will be updated.
