The Bavarians will hope to turn around their woes on the road as they visit the Imtech Arena, where Thorsten Fink's side have proven very difficult to beat


PROBABLE LINEUPS

HAMBURG


Drobny
Diekmeier, Rajkovic, Westermann, Aogo
Sala, Rincon, Jarolim, Jansen
Petric, Guerrero


BAYERN MUNICH


Neuer
Tymoshchuk, Boateng, Badstuber, Lahm
Schweinteiger, Kroos
Robben, Muller, Ribery
Gomez


Gokhan Tore continues to be sidelined for HSV following a meniscus tear, meaning that Jacopo Sala will feature on the right wing. Lam Zhi Gin (calf), Per Skjelbred (shin) and Marcus Berg (fitness) are also ruled out, leaving Thorsten Fink rather short of depth.

The trainer will have at least one tactical headache to overcome in the lead-up to the game, as he faces the decision to use either Slobodan Rajkovic or Jeffrey Bruma in defence alongside Heiko Westermann.

With Rafinha suspended and Daniel van Buyten and Diego Contento injured, Jupp Heynckes will have very few options in defence.

The coach is expected to keep Jerome Boateng in the centre, with Anatoliy Tymoshchuk filling in for Rafinha on the right. Alternatively, Heynckes could use either Breno or Luiz Gustavo in central defence, with Boateng at right-back.


DID YOU KNOW
  • Hamburg are the only Bundesliga team with a positive overall record against Bayern since the 2005-06 season.
  • Jose Paolo Guerrero has found the net in each of his team's last five home games.
  • Under Thorsten Fink, HSV have lost just one of their 10 games - that defeat was a recent 5-1 loss to Dortmund.
  • Bayern Munich have not won in Hamburg since November 25, 2006.
  • Should they manage four goals, the Bavarians will increase their historically tally to 200 against HSV in the Bundesliga.
  • Jerome Boateng will make his 100th Bundesliga appearance against his former club.
