It’s the last Bundesliga game of the Hinrunde for Bayern Munich, and this time the opponents are VfB Stuttgart. Hannes Wolf has his side clicking and in decent form, so the Swabians promise to be a tough challenge for the Bavarians.
Just four days before a Klassiker against Borussia Dortmund, Bayern will want a win to keep up momentum. Coach Jupp Heynckes goes into the game without Arjen Robben, Manuel Neuer, and Thiago Alcantara, all of whom have been sidelined due to injury. Kingsley Coman is a doubt for the game, apparently experiencing problems with his hip flexors. Apart from that, Bayern have a mostly fit squad to work with. It won’t be easy, but expect the boys to get the job done.
It’s Bayern time.
Location: Mercedes-Benz Arena, Stuttgart, Germany
Time: 3:30 pm local time, 9:30 am EST
