Date: Saturday 10th December Venue: Allianz Arena Competition: Bundesliga KO: 14.30
Bayern Munich could welcome back Thomas Muller and Philipp Lahm who were rested against Atletico in midweek.
Joshua Kimmich, Arturo Vidal both go for a place in midfield whilst Jerome Boateng misses out through injury.
Wolfsburg have Max Arnold and Paul Seguin suspended.
A back three could be adopted in this game and The Wolves will try and flood the midfield.
Things are not going quite according to plan this season for either Bayern or Wolfsburg. Bayern are sitting in second place three points behind surprise leaders RB Leipzig whereas Wolfsburg are in the middle of a relegation battle two points off the drop zone.
Two years ago, Wolfsburg pushed Bayern at the top of the table but that all now seems a distant memory. Poor form and the disgruntlement of star players Julian Draxler and Luis Gustavo have all added to a difficult time at the club.
Bayern need to win this game to keep the pressure on Leipzig. Carlo Ancelotti’s men face the league leaders before the winter break and a win over struggling Wolfsburg is more than likely.
Robert Lewandowski will remember playing against Wolfsburg last season, the striker scored a record five goals in nine minutes against.
Bayern are unbeaten at home this season.
Wolfsburg have a decent away record this season, winning two and drawing two of their six games away from the Volkswagen Arena.
Wolfsburg’s Mario Gomez spent four years at Bayern scoring 113 goals and winning two Bundesliga titles as well as the Champions League in 2013.
Bayern: Neuer; Lahm, Javi Martinez, Hummels, Alaba; Kimmich, Thiago, Alonso; Robben, Müller, Lewandowski
Wolfsburg: Benaglio; Knoche, Bruma, Rodriguez; Guilavogui; Blaszczykowski, Träsch, Gerhardt, Schäfer; Mayoral, Gomez
Prediction: Bayern 3-1 Wolfsburg
