The last time Bayern Munich took on Gladbach under Jupp Heynckes, the game ended in tears. Not because of the result - the game was a seven goal thriller that ended in favor of the Bavarians - but because it was top be Jupp Heynckes’ last ever Bundesliga appearance, in a city that he had brought so much joy to over the years.
Well four years later Jupp Heynckes is back, and once again he will lead Bayern against the team who have given him sooo much. Football, eh? Funny how it all works out.
Bayern head into the game with some notable absentees. Manuel Neuer, Franck Ribery, and Thomas Muller remain unavailable, while Thiago Alcantara and Arjen Robben will definitely be sidelined by the injuries they picked up in the Anderlecht game. Heynckes already confirmed in the pregame presser that James Rodriguez, Conrentin Tolisso, and Javi Martinez will all start. Therefore, it is only a question of what other names he will decide to put in the lineup. With Bayern’s current injury situation, nothing is for certain except this ...
