Midfield and attack for Bayern Munich on Tuesday

In the midfield department, Joshua Kimmich has excelled in the number six role during the past three games across all competitions. The German midfielder is likely to start in a similar role on Tuesday, but little more freedom to go ahead due to the presence of Leon Goretzka.

After missing the last three games, Goretzka will be back in action on Tuesday. He has been a big miss for Rekordmeister, considering the amount of drive and intensity he brings in the midfield. The German international will be looking to round off an impressive season with good performances in the last five league games.

Thomas Muller will occupy the number ten role. The veteran forward worked tirelessly in the last two games, providing sharpness in the final third in the absence of Lewandowski. Since he is so crucial to Flick’s system, he is unlikely to get rest on Tuesday.

Since there are concerns over the fitness of Sane, Jamal Musiala is likely to start on the right flank against Bayer Leverkusen. The teenager has been in fine form lately, scoring three goals in his last two Bundesliga games. On the other flank, Kingsley Coman will be providing the width, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting leading the attacking line.
