Bayern Munich vs Arminia Bielefeld build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
RB Leipzig closed the gap at the top of the table to just four points with a 2-1 win over Augsburg on Friday night, but Bayern can restore their seven-point lead with a win here, while also drawing level with Julian Nagelsmann’s side on 21 games played.
The reigning German, European and, now, world champions have been ruthless of late, winning each of their last seven games across all competitions, including five in the Bundesliga. Given their form, Flick will perhaps be most concerned about fatigue with just four days to travel back from Qatar and prepare for this clash.
Bielefeld, meanwhile, head south looking to rebound from back-to-back defeats, with Uwe Neuhaus’ men falling 3-1 away at Köln last time out following a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt.
Consequently, Bielefeld have dropped into the relegation playoff spot, but they are level on points with 15th-placed Hertha Berlin, while only five points separate them from Werder Bremen in 11th, so there is plenty of time yet to dig themselves out of trouble
- Bayern (vs Tigres): Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Alaba; Sane, Gnabry*, Coman; Lewandowski.
- Bielefeld (vs FC Köln): Moreno; Brunner, Pieper, Nilsson, Laursen, Hartel, Kunze; Doan, Klos, Yabo; Schipplock.
Serge Gnabry picked up a thigh injury against Tigres and will be unable to feature here, while Bayern will also be without Alexander Nübel, Jerome Boateng, Thomas Müller and Tanguy Nianzou. Corentin Tolisso is a doubt but Leon Goretzka and Javi Martinez could return.
Andreas Voglsammer and Manuel Prietl are both nearing returns from injury for the visitors.

Players to watch:
- Bayern Munich: Benjamin Pavard might have scored the winning goal, but the best strike of the night during the Club World Cup final win over Tigres was Joshua Kimmich‘s fine first-half effort, which curled into the bottom corner before being cruelly ruled out by VAR for a tenuous (at best) offside call. Still, that didn’t stop Kimmich from exerting a wonderful influence on the game, with the Germany international completing a team-high 79 passes, while only Alphonso Davies (106) had more touches of the ball than him (104). Kimmich also caused havoc for Tigres in the final third creating four chances, while his eight completed long balls helped stretch the Mexicans and push Bayern forward. Of course, to anyone who has watched Kimmich regularly this season, this is no surprise. Gone are the days of the 26-year-old being a right-back, he’s now a world-class deep-lying midfielder who has provided a Bundesliga-high 10 assists so far this season. Can he make Bielefeld the latest victim to his creative mastery here?
- Arminia Bielefeld: No side in the German top-flight has scored fewer goals this season than Arminia Bielefeld, so the recent emergence of Sergio Cordova as an attacking threat will be very welcome indeed. After failing to score a single goal all season, the 23-year-old Venezuelan forward has hit the net in each of his last two appearances, incredibly with just his second and third shots on target of the campaign. Unfortunately, both those goals have come in defeats, but Cordova should now be generating some personal confidence and Neuhaus will be looking to channel that in order to inspire an unlikely result against Bayern on Monday.
