Team News

  • Joshua Kimmich is suspended after his red card in Wolfsburg, a first sending off in his 220th Bundesliga game. Leon Goretzka will line up against his former club.
  • Ryan Gravenberch has recovered from a knee injury, while both Dayot Upamecano and Eric Choupo-Moting should return after missing the trip to Wolfsburg.
  • New signing Swiss international Yann Sommer has taken over in goal after captain Manuel Neuer broke his leg in a skiing accident.
  • Noussair Mazraoui is ruled out for several weeks with a COVID-related heart problem. Lucas Hernández suffered an ACL injury during the World Cup opener for France and will not play again this season.
  • Sadio Mane is ahead of schedule to return from a tendon injury, perhaps in time for Bayern's Champions League tie against PSG.
  • Cristian Gamboa is ruled out for around a month with a muscle tear, while Kostas Stafylidis is fit after a rib injury. Backup keeper Michael Esser has a muscle injury.


  • Bochum exited the German Cup on Wednesday evening and have lost nine out of 10 away games.
  • Therefore, a trip to the Bavarian capital is seemingly a thankless task, particularly after losing the reverse fixture 7-0 on home soil as well.
  • After grinding out three turgid 1-1 draws to start the year, Bayern blew Wolfsburg away last weekend and have all week to prepare.
  • Bayern can comfortably secure a first home league win of 2023 against relegation-threatened Bochum.
