Carlo Ancelotti is a cruel man. Having rested both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben in the midweek game against Schalke, the Italian will have his two mercurial wingers back rested and refreshed just in time to maim hapless Wolfsburg at the Allianz.
Bayern Munich go into this game as the clear favorites. Ever since Robert Lewandowski’s nine minute destruction of the Wolves two years ago, the Volkswagen Marketing Team have failed to get the better of the Bavarians even once. Robert Lewandowski has taken a particular liking to the Wolves - scoring 10 goals in the last four league games against them. He will be looking to add to his tally and keep himself ahead of Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the top of the Bundesliga scoring charts.
It’s Bayern time.
