Bayern Munich and Köln will do battle in the RheinEnergieStadion on Saturday in a big match for the Bavarians. A victory will push Bayern a full seven points ahead of RB Leipzig in the table, following the newcomers 2-2 draw with Augsburg on Friday.
During the Hinrunde, Bayern were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw when Köln fought back from a halftime deficit to equalize through Anthony Modeste. The forward has netted an impressive 17 of Köln’s 31 goals so far this season and hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.
Carlo Ancelotti’s lineup choices for this match will be interesting to see. While Bayern are headed to London midweek with an impressive 5-1 lead over Arsenal, Ancelotti won’t want to run out a lineup that isn’t close to full strength in that match. Perhaps two matches of mixed lineups?
It’s Bayern time.
