Julian Nagelsmann takes on his former club RB Leipzig when Bayern Munich travel to Saxony in the Bundesliga on Saturday at 5.30pm (UK time).
The 34-year-old tactician has made a positive start to life in the Bavarian hotseat, already winning his first Der Klassiker against rivals Borussia Dortmund, his first piece of silverware in the German Super Cup and overseen a three-game unbeaten run the league. Jesse Marsch, who succeeded Nagelsmann at the Red Bull Arena, has not shared the same early enjoyment, already losing two games in the Bundesliga, so this contest represents a chance to really thrown down the gauntlet.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Life under American coach Marsch has not been a seamless transition from Nagelsmann, with the former Red Bull Salzburg manager struggling to find form and consistency in these early stages. As it stands, Die Roten Bullen have lost by a 1-0 scoreline to both Mainz (on matchday one) and Wolfsburg, with the only major result to write home about being that emphatic 4-0 rout over Stuttgart.
There has been a very familiar feel in Bavaria on the other hand, with the German champions currently unbeaten and recently enjoying a 5-0 triumph over capital club Hertha. Silverware has already been secured with the German Super Cup, Robert Lewandowski is the current top scorer in the Bundesliga (five goals) and a Der Klassiker triumph has already been achieved. Nagelsmann has ticked every box so far.
- RB Leipzig (vs Wolfsburg): Gulacsi; Klostermann, Orban, Simakan, Gvardiol; Adams, Haidara, Szoboszlai, Forsberg, Nkunku; Silva.
- Bayern Munich (vs Hertha): Neuer; Stanisic, Upamecano*, Sule, Davies*; Kimmich, Goretzka, Gnabry, Muller, Musiala; Lewandowski.
Angelino and Marcelo Saracchi remain out of action for the hosts, while Bayern are potentially without the struggling Corentin Tolisso and Dayot Upamecano, the latter of whom has a slight hamstring tweak, which enforced his absence from France’s World Cup Qualifiers. Alphonso Davies is also a major doubt after picking up an injury during Canada’s 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with the United States, which forced him out of a subsequent clash with El Salvador.

Player to watch: Dominik Szoboszlai (RB Leipzig)
The Red Bull recruitment model has been a fruitful venture in recent years, and Dominik Szoboszlai is another generational talent unearthed from Salzburg before trading Austrian football for the Bundesliga. Erling Haaland, a former team-mate of Szoboszlai at Salzburg, is unequivocally the poster boy of Red Bull’s recently-esteemed scouting network, but Szoboszlai has the potential to reach the Norwegian’s heights. At just 20, the versatile Hungarian midfielder is operating at a level that belies his tender years, playing with the maturity of a player 10 years his senior and the technical verve of an elite playmaker. Hungary have been crying out for a world-class star in the mould of Ferenc Puskas and Zoltan Czibor; the weight of a nation rests on Szoboszlai’s shoulders. Bayern beware!
