Team News

  • Alessandro Schöpf and Suat Serdar return to the squad after injury, but Nassim Boujellab is out with a fractured jaw.
  • Austrian striker Guido Burgstaller will plough a lonely furrow up front.
  • Lucas Hernández could replace fellow French World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard for his debut in central defence.
  • Jérôme Boateng and Leon Goretzka both missed training on Wednesday and are unlikely to be risked.
  • After sitting out due to suspension, loan signing Ivan Perisic will take a place on the bench, while a more high-profile acquisition, Philippe Coutinho is not fit enough to travel.
  • Talented French youngster Michael Cuisance has also arrived on a five-year deal from Borussia Monchengladbach, but will find it hard to break into the starting XI.


  • Following a sloppy home draw against Hertha Berlin in the season curtain-raiser, Bayern will expect to make swift amends with all three points against Schalke.
  • The "Royal Blues" scraped a goalless draw at Gladbach and already have amassed one point more than they did this time last season when they started with five straight defeats.
  • This looks like a narrow Bayern win with Wagner's Overture purely based on damage limitation with a Schalke side that do not look full of goals.
