“It’s a pity that Joshua Kimmich will be suspended. Nevertheless, the team played outstandingly in the second half (against Darmstadt). It was really fun to watch. That’s how I always imagine FC Bayern. I hope we can put Dortmund under pressure on Saturday,” Hoeneß told Sky (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
As of now, banged up veterans Leon Goretzka and Raphaël Guerreiro are practicing and could be made available for this weekend. Though it is a massive stage, youngster Aleksandar Pavlovic has also seen his name bandied about as a potential starter to pair up with Konrad Laimer, but that appears to be a longshot.
Interestingly, there has no discussion of dropping Jamal Musiala back to the No. 8 position, which is curious.
