Who is available for Bayern Munich?

Hansi Flick provided some positive updates on injured players during his pre-match conference on Monday. The German manager confirmed that Leon Goretzka has trained with the squad, and he is available for the game against Leverkusen. Robert Lewandowski is making steady progress and should return to action for the weekend’s game.

Reports have suggested that Leroy Sane is facing a late fitness test to be fit for Tuesday’s game due to an elbow injury. Serge Gnabry will miss this game since he is still in quarantine. Marc Roca and Douglas Costa remain on the sidelines for Rekordmeister, while Corentin Tolisso is the long-term absentee. Lucas Hernandez is fit to play in this game despite suffering a knock against Wolfsburg.

Goalkeeper and defense for Bayern Munich

Manuel Neuer has been unlucky with clean sheets this season. He was not at fault for both goals Wolfsburg scored on Saturday since both were scored during lapses in concentration for the back four. The German goalkeeper will be looking to end the season strongly by getting more clean sheets to his name.

In the back four, Jerome Boateng and David Alaba are likely to start in the heart of the defense. Niklas Sule and Lucas Hernandez played on Saturday, so giving them rest on Tuesday makes sense. Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies will not be getting any rest against Leverkusen, though. Both of them will slot in the respective full-back positions.
