Bayern Munich II is set to kickoff shortly, but will not exactly be operating at full power. Several key members of the squad are “ailing” or injured per the club. Joshua Zirkzee (unavailable due to callup) and Angelo Stiller (injured) are both part of that group whod will miss the match against FC Viktoria Köln.
Malik Tillman is, of course, out with a long-term ACL injury, while Nicolas Feldhahn (torn meniscus), Can Karatas, and Bright Arrey-Mbi are also unavailable. Newcomer Tiago Dantas is also not dressing for the game, but no news was provided on his status.
On the bright side, Chris Richards will make his return to the pitch after missing time with a calf injury, while Maximilian Zaiser, Maximilian Welzmüller, and Nicolas Kühn will also join the starting XI.
The team is coming off a 0-0 draw against 1. FC Kaiserslautern, where Ron-Thorben Hoffmann was excellent in goal. With Fiete Arp and Leon Dajaku as keys to the offensive attack today, it should be another good opportunity for both players to continue making a push to establish themselves with the club.
