Bayern Munich are set to rest a host of players with Tuesday's DFB-Pokal clash with Wolfsburg on the horizon. Tom Starke may replace Manuel Neuer in goal, but at the back, Jerome Boateng is certain to replace Daniel Van Buyten, who limped off against Juventus in midweek.

Rafinha could also start ahead of Philipp Lahm at right-back, while Diego Contento could replace David Alaba on the opposite side of defence. Bastian Schweinsteiger is likely to to be rested, and with Luiz Gustavo suspended, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk is in line for a rare start in midfield.

Franck Ribery should get a break on the left flank, while Mario Gomez will start ahead of Mario Mandzukic. Toni Kroos (thigh) and Holger Badstuber (knee) are both out.

Meanwhile, Nurnberg will be without Adam Hlousek and Marcos Antonio, who are both struggling for fitness and Timo Gebhart, who has a thigh issue.
