4-2-3-1 Bayern Munich Predicted Lineup Vs Wolfsburg: Rodriguez To Start

Bayern Munich will look to continue their resounding success this week, as they host a struggling Wolfsburg on a Friday Night fixture this week. The Bavarians are on the back of two excellent victories over Mainz and Schalke and will be hoping to extend their winning record to three games. Wolfsburg, on the other hand, were the first club to sack their manager this season. They showed the exit door for former Arsenal youth head Andries Jonker just before the start of matchday 5.

Here’s the predicted Bayern Munich lineup to face Wolfsburg this Friday.

Goalkeeper: Sven Ulreich has been excellent against Schalke. Tasked with a job to replace Manuel Neuer for the rest of 2017, Ulreich will look to continue his good form against Wolfsburg this week.

Right Back: Joshua Kimmich once again prevailed as the right back. He will be looking to make further impressions, by chipping in with a few more assists.

Center Back(R): Jerome Boateng is expected to be back in the starting lineup after being benched out in the midweek fixture against Schalke. The German International will look to get ready himself before the big encounter against PSG next week.

Center Back(L): Niklas Sule is also expected to be dropped to the bench, making way for Mats Hummels. There’s no doubt that the former Dortmund captain will be crucial in defence for Bayern in the coming weeks.

Left Back: Rafinha will keep his place in the side after a series of solid performances, playing in an unusual left back position.

Central Defensive Midfield: We expect Arturo Vidal to replace Sebastian Rudy in the centre of the midfield. The Chilean made a quick impact after coming on a sub against Schalke, scoring from a delightful volley inside the box.

Central Defensive Midfield: Thiago Alcantara might also make his comeback into the starting eleven. The Spanish International will definitely be a crucial outlet for Bayern in midfield.

Right Wing: Thomas Muller will have to be content with a spot on the bench as Arjen Robben could again be available for Carlo Ancelotti. The Dutchman was ruled out of the Schalke class because of a slight illness.

Central Attacking Midfield: James Rodriguez will definitely retain his place in the team. The Colombian marked his arrival in terrific fashion with a goal and an assist. He even got a perfect ten from T4O’s player ratings after the game.

Left Wing: It will be interesting to see who starts on the left wing against Wolfsburg. Kingsley Coman might not have been productive but his direct runs caused a lot of trouble for the Schalke defence in midweek. And for that reason, he could manage to retain his place in the team.

Striker: Robert Lewandowski shows no signs of stopping at the moment. The Polish hitman once again scored the opener against Schalke, for his sixth goal of the season. He will be looking to add more to his already impressive tally on Friday.

This is how they might line up:
