Picking the Best Potential Bayern Munich Lineup to Face Cologne on Wednesday

​Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich host winless and bottom side Cologne at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night, and having rested some of their bigger name's from Saturday's 1-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, could be set to return to relatively full strength for this one. 


A daunting prospect for their visitors.

Goalkeeper

​With first and second choice goalkeepers Manuel Neuer and Sven Ulreich both injured, Starke looks set to continue between the posts, having done so at Frankfurt at the weekend.

Defence

​David Alaba and Mats Hummels both started on the bench for the weekend win in Frankfurt, and though Alaba did get a brief cameo in the latter end of the second half, both should be fully fresh come Wednesday night. 


Joshua Kimmich has featured in every Bundesliga game this season, while Jerome Boateng could continue to feature having started each of the last two games.

Midfield

​Arturo Vidal's winner, the only goal of the game, at Frankfurt on Saturday, was his third goal in as many league games, while Corentin Tolisso continues to impress following his summer move from Lyon, having found the net twice in the 3-1 win over PSG in the Champions League midweek. 


James Rodriguez meanwhile, continues to resurrect his career at the Allianz Arena.

​Having had just a six minute cameo in the win over Frankfurt, Robert Lewandowski will look to continue his run that currently stands at fourteen league goals from fifteen games this season. 


Incredibly, Thomas Muller and Kingsley Coman have just three league goals between them this season, but both will likely fancy their chances of improving their records against the league's leakiest defence.
