Bundesliga Preview: Wolfsburg - Bayern Munich

Bundesliga Preview: Wolfsburg - Bayern Munich

Bongarts

The Bavarian giants travel to Lower Saxony to meet their former coach Felix Magath and will be looking to bounce back following their opening day defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach


PROBABLE LINE-UPS
Wolfsburg (4-2-3-1)

Benaglio; Hasebe, Kjaer, Russ, Schafer; Ochs, Trasch, Josue, Salihamidzic; Helmes, Mandzukic

Felix Magath is set to have a nearly full squad on hand, with only long-term absentees Arne Friedrich and Thomas Kahlenberg, as well as the dropped Diego, unavailable from his first-team squad.

Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1)

Neuer; Rafinha, Boateng, Badstuber, Lahm; Gustavo, Schweinsteiger; Robben, Muller, Ribery; Gomez

Franck Ribery is fit once more and tipped to start, although should he be unable play the full 90 minutes, Toni Kroos will be on hand to deputise. The only confirmed absentee from Jupp Heynckes' squad is Breno, who is not yet fully fit.


DID YOU KNOW?
 

  • Wolfsburg have only enjoyed one win in their last 10 competitive matches against Bayern (two draws, seven defeats).
  • The Wolves' last win against Bayern was an emphatic one, though. In April 2009 they beat the Munich-based side 5-1 at home.
  • Felix Magath's men have won four of their last five league games (one defeat).
  • Bayern Munich have only lost one of their last 10 Bundesliga games (seven wins, two draws), not allowing their opponents more than one goal in any of these fixtures.
  • The Allianz Arena outfit have only won one of their last six Bundesliga outings at Wolfsburg (three draws, two defeats).
  • If the Bavarians lose this weekend, the German record champions would start the new campaign with two defeats for the first time in Bundesliga history.
