For the third time this season, Bayern Munich and Darmstadt will face each other. With a 3-0 and 1-0 victory under their belts already, Bayern will be targeting a third victory on the way to their Champions League match against Juventus.
Regardless of what the club says, everyone is already looking forward to Juventus. The goal will be not to stub a toe against Darmstadt. Dropping points ahead of a trip to Turin won't be the way to boost confidence before facing last year's UCL runners up.
Medhi Benatia, Mario Götze, and Franck Ribery are all healthy and ready to play, while Serdar Tasci is also fit for the first time since joining Bayern on loan. Managing minutes as the players come back from injury will be key for Pep Guardiola.
Once the lineups are released, this thread will be updated.
