Bayern Munich

Substitutes: Weinkauf, Hummels, Thiago, Robben, Alonso, Lahm, Vidal

Bayern suffered another injury this week as Sven Ulreich went down in training on Friday with an elbow injury. He’ll miss the remainder of the season meaning that Tom Starke will get the final three starts of the season (and his career)? Today, Leo Weinkauf from Bayern II will get the backup job.

Carlo Ancelotti is resting Xabi Alonso and Philipp Lahm today as both legends start the match on the bench. Joshua Kimmich and Renato Sanches will run Bayern’s midfield in this one, hoping to keep Darmstadt’s midfield off-balance enough for the attack to do their dirty work.

Robert Lewandowski is backed by an attacking midfield of Franck Ribery, Thomas Müller, and Douglas Costa.

Folks, I’m feeling goals in this one.

Darmstadt

Torsten Frings has his work cut out for him in this win, as only a miracle can help Darmstadt avoid being relegated at the end of the season.
