Domenico Tedesco makes three changes to the guests compared to the last competitive game. Instead of Mohamed Simakan (knee injury), Benjamin Henrichs and Hugo Novoa (both on the bench), Lukas Klostermann, Nordi Mukiele and Dani Olmo will be in the Leipzig starting line-up. Tyler Adams (thigh strain) and Marcel Halstenberg (rehabilitation training) are not options today.
Both sides have seen limited activity during the most recent transfer window. No signings were made at all. There are only a few disposals, some of which are lending transactions. In any case, we are dealing with well-known personnel today. On the home side, this even led to Julian Nagelsmann sending the unchanged starting XI from the last Bundesliga game in Berlin onto the pitch. The bench is also presented with an identical line-up. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bouna Sarr (both Africa Cup of Nations), Alphonso Davies (inflammation of the heart muscle) and Leon Goretzka (patella tendon problems) are currently not available for the record champions.
Welcome to the Saturday night game in the Bundesliga! As part of the 21st match day, FC Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig meet at 6:30 p.m.
