According to a report from Bild, the status of Bayern Munich defenders Lucas Hernandez and Niklas Süle is still uncertain, though there is optimism:

Whether defensive stars Lucas Hernandez (25) and Niklas Süle (26) will be able to play against Freiburg will not be decided until Friday. Both were spared against Benfica. Tendency: They’ll be back against Freiburg.

It should be noted that “tendency” is not a definite, so Friday’s training session should shed more light on the status of both defenders.

If both players cannot go, we could see Tanguy Nianzou at center-back again or Benjamin Pavard could slide in centrally. If Pavard were to play center-back, it could be assumed that Josip Stanisic will play right-back.

Anyway you slice it, Julian Nagelsmann has options.

As for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, the back-up striker has resumed training with the ball an got in a solid workout with Dr. Holger Broich. earlier today.
