Ya Konan, Diouf

BAYERN
 
Neuer
Rafinha, Boateng, Dante, Alaba

Shaqiri, Pizarro, Ribery
Gomez

With their Champions League date with Barcelona looming large, Bayern will once again look to rest some key players, with the likes of Philipp Lahm, Daniel Van Buyten, Javi Martinez, Mario Gomez, Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben likely to be left out this weekend.

That means Rafinha, Luiz Gustavo, Xherdan Shaqiri and Claudio Pizarro will all start, while Mario Mandzukic will miss out due to a minor knock. Toni Kroos and Holger Badstuber remain long-term absentees.

Meanwhile, Hannover will be without a host of players for the visit of the new German champions, with Leon Andreasen, Mario Eggimann and Szabolcs Huszti all nursing their way back from injury and lacking fitness.

Felipe has a hamstring problem and Franca is recovering after suffering from tuberculosis.
