Bayern Munich will be looking to maintain their stellar run of form when they host Fortune Dusseldorf at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. The Bavarians are coming on the back of a narrow but important 1-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker in midweek. Currently, they have a comprehensive seven-point lead at the club. A win this weekend could help them further their grip on the Bundesliga title.
Predicted Bayern Munich Lineup Vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Hansi Flick is likely to make one or two changes following a strenuous set of fixtures. Jerome Boateng is expected to get a breather after playing through the Dortmund game. He could make way for Lucas Hernandez in central defence.
The Frenchman is likely to accompany David Alaba in central defence. The latter is in great form at the moment and will be looking to once again help his team retain a clean sheet.
Speaking of which, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was largely untroubled against Dortmund. He will be hoping for a similar match this weekend, though Fortuna are quite unpredictable going forward.
That also means fullbacks Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies will need to be aware of their positioning. But they are more likely to enjoy freedom in this fixture as Fortuna are expected to defend in deep blocks.
Joshua Kimmich was hailed as the player of the matchday this midweek. And the German international is more than expected to retain his place in the holding midfield role. His positioning and aggression could be key in dealing against the Fortuna press.
Kimmich is likely to be partnered by Leon Goretzka in the double-pivot as Thiago Alcantara continues to suffer from his injury. Corentin Tolisso is also out injured meaning we may see Mickael Cuisance making a late substitute appearance.
Flick is more than expected to give Kingsley Coman a breather, with Ivan Perisic in line to replace him on the wings. Same cannot be said for Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller, both of who have emerged as key components in Bayern Munich’s successful creative unit in the post Niko Kovac era.
And finally, the Bayern Munich attack will be led by none other than Robert Lewandowski. The Pole will be keen on returning to scoring form, having failed to find the back of the net against Borussia Dortmund.
