Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac’s would have been disappointed with his side’s defeat to Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend, and will be hoping his team can respond with a victory on Wednesday night
Hertha, however, will be confident as they have only lost two fixtures at home all season and have already got the better of Bayern once this season.
3. Goalkeeper & Defenders
Sven Ulreich (GK) – Second choice goalkeeper Ulreich will be called into action after Manuel Neur picked up a hand injury at the weekend.
Joshua Kimmich (RB) – The German international will look to show his attacking capabilities on Wednesday night.
Niklas Sule (CB) – A towering centre back has been impressive this season, becoming one of Kovac’s go-to defenders.
Jerome Boateng (CB) – A consistent starter, Boateng will be hoping to improve upon his shaky early season form.
David Alaba (LB) – The attacking full back will do his best to provide an attacking outlet on the left flank for Bayern.
Renato Sanches (CM) – Sanches has enjoyed an extended run back in the first team and looks much improved this season.
Javi Martinez (CDM) – Martinez will be the pivot between defence and attack – he will look to dictate play as much as possible.
Thomas Muller (RM) – The Bayern captain will have to rally his troops after a disastrous defeat at the weekend.
Leon Goretzka (CAM) – The new signing has been one of the bright sparks for Bayern this season.
James Rodriguez (LM) – The Colombian will be looking to impress after a difficult few months on the sidelines.
Robert Lewandoski (ST) – Undoubtedly the star man, Lewandowski has been in good form this season – scoring 23 goals already – and will be hoping to add to that tally on Wednesday night.
