Bayern Munich’s future captain Joshua Kimmich, missed the final training session on Friday, leaving concerns that he would miss Saturday’s clash against FC Köln. These concerns were recently laid to rest as Kerry Hau reported that the German midfielder would be ready for selection on Matchday 6.

Kimmich has been an essential member of the Bavarians’ midfield this season. Despite the major loss of Thiago, we have seen some excellent performances from the middle of the park thus far.

Leon Goretzka, was also a worry after he was substituted at half-time in the midweek clash against Lokomotiv Moscow in the Champions League Group Stage. Hansi Flick believes that Goretzka should be able to play again on Saturday. “I think everyone can be there,” said Flick on Friday.

Not to worry Müller Mafia, our Raumdeuter should also be available for selection despite muscular problems. Thomas Müller had also been replaced early in Moscow.

Shockingly, it was confirmed by AZ that Lewandowski stayed in Munich to rest this weekend. The Polish international will be replaced by none other than Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. Lewandowski will get some well deserved rest while The Reds take on The Billy Goats.

We will know for sure any moment as the squad lineup should be ready to drop. Stay tuned!
