Coming off a big win in the Champions League, Bayern Munich travel to Hamburg for their first away game of Jupp Heynckes’ fourth tenure. The record champions will be looking for a dominant win to keep their momentum going - having scored 8 and conceded none in Jupp’s first two games in charge.
Bayern sit two points off the pace at second in the Bundesliga, with Borussia Dortmund facing Frankfurt earlier the same day. However, the sterner test lies in the near future, with back to back games against RB Leipzig looming on the horizon. Jupp may want to rotate for this game, but all the main stars are expected to play. Robert Lewandowski will want to score a few against Hamburg to keep up the pressure on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the top of the scoring charts, while Thomas Muller will be looking to keep up his recent run of form. In defense, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels, and Joshua Kimmich are all expected to start, and goalkeeper Sven Ulriech will be hoping he can make it three clean sheets in a row under Heynckes. If things go well, then Bayern could even find itself on top of the table by the end of the matchday.
