The Countdown is on. Only a week until the first leg of FC Bayern in the Champions League next Tuesday at Liverpool.

Jürgen Klopp has brought with its Reds, the General sample with the 3:0 against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday successfully and prepares himself and his team are now in the five-day Short training camp in Spain on the final Hit.

For Bayern, the League game is on Friday at FC Augsburg in front of the king classes-cracker. The preparation for running – in spite of all assertions to the contrary, the Munich – of course, for weeks. Coach Niko Kovac is working with his team since the beginning of the year. There’s no question that in this important game of every single one of his pros wants to be there.

“We have heard a lot about the atmosphere in the stadium,” said Bayern captain Manuel Neuer in the case of ESPN and raved about the home of the Reds at Anfield: “All who watch football know that it is special.”

Kovac has found his starting XI for Liverpool for a long time. In it there are actually only two small question marks. The AZ Kovacs, king-graders:


On this Position Kovac declared the world’s biggest construction site. New missed the last three games due to a thumb injury, replacement, Sven Ulreich represented him well.

“We are all positive. I think I will stand between the posts,” said New. “For me, it’s not going well, it is so bad. If in Training it all fits, then I’m going to play.” For the 32-year-old world champion it would be his first game at Anfield. New expected against Liverpool “two of the finals. Hopefully it will be a great night for us.” Whether he will be fit in time, however, is just as open as a possible use for the General rehearsal on Friday in Augsburg.


Three of the four positions are assigned. The two full-backs David Alaba and Joshua Kimmich are currently no alternative. And Central defender Niklas Süle Kovac said at the beginning of the back round to his new defense chief, and said: “He is a regular player in front of the other two.”

the creative Pause, which he gave to Süle against Schalke changes, nothing. The seat next to him, Jérôme Boateng and Mats Hummels fight. Against the Royal Blues, they were allowed to play together. Boateng, however, for the first time this year in the starting lineup. Although Hummels last in the Cup in the second round in Berlin (3:2 n. V.) allowed a blunder that led to a goal and the necessary extension, he’s currently more a slight advantage in the case of Kovac. Who will play the two against Augsburg, then in Liverpool from the beginning ran.

Central midfielder

Well, Kovac is already set on a Trio. Thiago, he pulled back a little and trust the Spaniards on the Six as a game designer and a fourth-line defensive center. Triple-Hero Javi Martínez comes there not more to train. Just as Renato Sanches.

With four hits in the first three games of 2019 has made Leon Goretzka is currently virtually indispensable. The national players who joined in the summer after Munich, has finally arrived at FC Bayern. Least slowed Kovac Goretzkas an urge to be Offensive but again a little and pulled back on the 24-Year-old something. imago/DeFodi Came in the summer to FC Bayern: Leon Goretzka

convinced As on of the Ten currently finally a other: . In the first half of the season, the Colombian, was also stopped by a outer ligament of the knee, Bavaria’s biggest problem child. The relationship with Kovac is not considered to be the best. In the past three Games, he was in the starting lineup and impressed. “The Ball is locked up in him as in a Safe-Deposit box,” enthused team-mate David Alaba: “James is a tremendous player.” And sports Director Hasan Salihamidzic: “He presses the Play of his stamp.” James said: “I have a great desire to play against Liverpool.”

Vice-captain Thomas Müller, however, is currently outside of the Champions League anyway, because he will miss both of Liverpool’s games due to his Red-lock.


In the storm center over to Robert Lewandowski at the weekend against Schalke captain. For the 30-Year-old the duels with Liverpool are the next Chance to show that he can also represent the decisive matches of the Champions League the difference. This evidence, he remained at Bayern yet guilty.

On the outer tracks Kovac with Kingsley Coman (22) and Serge Gnabry (23) relies on a lot of speed. Both are well started in the back round. Coman scored the winner in Berlin, Gnabry last three goals in two Games (two against Hertha, one against Schalke).

Arjen Robben, 35, from falls due to a Thigh problem, however, since the end of November. Franck Ribéry, 35, according to its own muscle bundles, not fit again, the two young over spunden at the moment.

Two items are in the Bayern-Eleven still vacant: that of The goalkeeper – and the place in Central defence alongside Süle. Outdoor Kimmich defend and Alaba, Goretzka and Thiago to form the double-six. On the wings Gnabry and Coman storm, in the middle of Lewandowski. Behind the James plays.
