Bayern Munich vs. Bayer is finally that time.

If you were looking for a bigger match in the Bundesliga this season, you will not find it. The first place and second place teams are set to do battle in a match that will have a massive effect on the league standings.

Why wait any long to get talking on this one? Let’s take a look at what we have on tap for this Preview Show:

  • A look at where each team is in the table.
  • The multitude of subplots between these two teams.
  • Some thoughts on Bayern Munich’s injury and absence situation, plus why this week will present Thomas Tuchel with some very, very difficult decisions for his starting XI.
  • An attempt to figure out Tuchel’s lineup for the game — and why common sense probably will not prevail.
  • A prediction on the match.
