The Bavarians once again have plenty of injuries to contend with. Kingsley Coman may well be unavailable for the rest of the season, while James Rodriguez isn’t yet fit to start. With Franck Ribery out with a stomach bug, that means Jupp Heynckes will need to get creative if he wants to occupy the left wing. Both Juan Bernat and David Alaba can play as left wingers, but there is also the possibilty that Jupp will opt for something imaginative, such as the exceedingly rare left-wing Arjen Robben or the ever-vesatile Thomas Muller.
On Freiburg’s side of things, how Christian Streich sets up his team will be of great interest to Bayern, who may be looking at him to become Jupp Heynckes’ successor. If Streich gets it wrong like he did the last time, then the Bavarians may just pull off a repeat of the 5-0 drubbing in the Hinrunde.
