Bayern Munich vs FC Köln build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Chasing a historic 10th straight Bundesliga title, Bayern Munich made a stuttering start to the new campaign with a 1-1 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach last week.  That said, with the firepower they have at their disposal, the Bavarians remain huge favourites to once again lock up German football. What’s more, new manager Julian Nagelsmann received a mid-week boost of confidence with his first trophy, beating Dortmund to win the DFL-Supercup.

Though they needed penalties to progress beyond Carl Zeiss Jena in the DFB-Pokal first round, Köln will be brimming with confidence themselves after opening the new Bundesliga campaign with a 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin. After finishing 16th, the Billy Goats had to take down Holstein Kiel in a relegation/promotion playoff last season but all the early signs point to a more comfortable campaign this time around. That said, Köln were on the wrong end of a 5-1 beating on their last trip to the Allianz Arena.

  • Bayern Munich (vs Borussia Dortmund): Neuer; Stanisic, Upamecano, Sule, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Coman, Muller, Gnabry; Lewandowski.
  • FC Köln (vs Hertha Berlin): Horn; Schmitz, Hubers, Czichos, Hector; Skhiri; Thielmann, Kainz; Ljubicic; Uth, Modeste.

Corentin Tolisso was able to appear off the bench against Dortmund but compatriot Lucas Hernandez missed out. His status remains unknown here.

Player to watch: Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)

After winning six of the last eight ‘Torjägerkanone’ crowns as the Bundesliga’s top scorer, it appears Robert Lewandowski has finally had enough of putting Germany’s top-flight to the sword.

Reports now claim the Poland international — who netted a ridiculous 41 goals in just 29 Bundesliga appearances last season — wants to leave Bayern Munich, putting a number of European giants on high alert.

It’s stated that Lewandowski, currently 32, wants to secure a move before he turns 35 but any club wishing to get the best out of him would obviously look to bring him in much sooner. However, Bayern have placed a valuation of over £100m on this desire.

Lewandowski already has three goals in two games so far this season, including two against Dortmund in the Super Cup, illustrating his importance to Bayern. Can he put all this speculation to one side to take his personal tally against FC Köln beyond the 14 he already has in just 15 games?
