Bayern Munich star Thomas Müller will be without a familiar face in the lineup when his squad squares off against RB Leipzig in what should be a classic Bundesliga showdown.

Robert Lewandowski’s knee injury has put the Polish Hitman on the shelf and Müller can only be left to think about what things might have looked like if the duo was able to take the field as a tandem.

“We know that when we play together we are stronger,” said Müller in an interview with ESPN. “He’s very good because I know what he wants to do, so I know to how set it up for him. He knows that when I look up, I try to find him. I always try to find the straightest way to the goal, and normally that’s [by looking for] the striker. He knows I don’t play for the circus shot, I play for scoring.”

The duo’s relationship is truly one-of-a-kind in the sport for today’s game. There are certainly other great tandems, but there might not be two players who feed off of each more than Müller and Lewandowski.

How will the Bavarians do without their leading scorer against RB Leipzig? We’ll find out very shortly.
