Bayern Munich are hoping to extend their winning run to nine games in all competitions as they take on Dynamo Kyiv on Wednesday. The Bavarians thrashed aside FC Barcelona in their opening Champions League fixture a fortnight ago and are heading into this game on the back of successive victories over newly-promoted Bundesliga duo Greuther Furth and VfL Bochum, making them the undisputed favourites to grab all three points.
Predicted Bayern Munich Lineup Vs Dynamo Kyiv
Julian Nagelsmann might want to make a few changes from the side that secured a 3-1 win over Furth on the weekend. A shift to a back four could be on the cards with Benjamin Pavard starting at right-back despite his red card in the last game.
Dayot Upamecano could be rested for this Champions League encounter, thus paving the way for Niklas Sule to marshall the Bayern Munich back-four alongside Lucas Hernandez. They will be desperate for a clean sheet after conceding an unnecessary goal against Greuther Furth.
At left-back, Nagelsmann will be tempted to rest Alphonso Davies by starting with Omar Richards. But he won’t be taking the risk so early on in the campaign, which means the Canadian should continue featuring at left-back.
Manuel Neuer, meanwhile, remains a guaranteed starter in between the sticks for the Bavarians.
Nagelsmann might ring in the changes in the middle of the park this midweek. Leon Goretzka, for one, could be given an important breather ahead of the game against Eintracht Frankfurt.
It will pave the way for new signing Marcel Sabitzer to operate in the double-pivot alongside Kimmich, who is likely to make way for Goretzka around the hour mark. Marc Roca is another option for Nagelsmann, but he is unlikely to receive a start in this encounter.
Moving forward, Serge Gnabry is expected to make his way back into the starting eleven. The same can be said about Jamal Musiala, with in-form Leroy Sane getting a much-needed breather after starting consecutively.
Both Sane and Kingsley Coman are options in the second half while Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski should continue to occupy the central roles. Lewandowski, in particular, is hoping to find his scoring feet after his consecutive goalscoring record came to an end against Greuther Furth.
