Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to return after missing the DFB Pokal clash with FC Ingolstadt with a cold, while Jerome Boateng will be suspended after receiving a red card during last weekend's defeat to Hannover. Dutch winger Arjen Robben is back in training, but is still some way away from making a first team return.

Dieter Hecking is still lacking a number of players for the trip to the Allianz Arena. Bayern Munich old-boy Markus Feulner is set to miss a return to his old stadium, along with Javier Pinola and Christian Eigler. Swiss forward Albert Bunjaku is a serious doubt, but defender Timm Klose is set to return to the fold.
