This can be the penultimate sport of the Bundesliga season, nevertheless it actually seems like a last. Bayern Munich want all three factors if they’re to retain prime spot, however Leipzig are combating for a spot within the Premier League Champions League subsequent season, so they are going to be reluctant to do with out champions.
Matches between these two groups are at all times aggressive, however they hardly ever include a excessive stakes. Let’s examine what Thomas Tuchel has to work with.
In line with the coach, solely Alfonso Davies, Lucas Hernandez, Manuel Neuer and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will miss the match on account of damage. Jan Sommer is again in coaching after his abdomen issues earlier within the week, whereas Thomas Mueller and Serge Gnabry have educated usually. Which means that the group is sort of the healthiest in Tuchel’s period.

Nevertheless, the 4-1-4-1 confirmed its power in opposition to Schalke 04, because it was extremely unpredictable and tough for the opposition to counter. With Thomas Müller and Jamal Musiala on the pitch collectively, Bayern have doubled their attacking presence tenfold. Given the struggles to attain objectives underneath Tuchel this season and the shortage of an actual striker, the 4-1-4-1 would possibly get the nod in any case.
This is a glimpse of what the line-up may appear like, ought to Tuchel go for the 4-1-4-1 in any case:
