The upcoming event could be best described as a David against Goliath battle. The champion of Bundesliga and Champions League for the previous season against a fifth-tier team. It is more than obvious which team the clear and firm favourite is but we all know that Cup matches could sometimes bring unexpected surprises.
The coach of Bayern Hanz Flick will face some obstacles as there is a large number of players that took part in international games and they should be rested for sure. Niklas Sule could be used anyway as he did not take part against Switzerland on Tuesday. The goalkeeper place will be occupied by Alexander Nubel who will make an official debut with Bayern’s jersey. Douglas Costa and Chuppo-Moting will participate as well.
