Bayern Munich will have the golden opportunity to dethrone Borussia Dortmund as the Bundesliga leaders as they host VfL Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena this weekend.The Bavarians are trailing their arch-rivals due to an inferior goal-difference but are coming on the back of an exceptional run of form that saw them collect twelve points since the start of February. Dortmund, meanwhile, have collected only six during that time-frame.

Bayern’s most recent victory came against Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend and head coach Niko Kovac will demand a similar display against a Wolfsburg side, who have an awful record against the German champions.That being said, the Wolves have collected as many as 24 points from their last 12 Bundesliga matches, a tally bettered only by three teams, including Bayern and Dortmund.
Even though they are coming on the back of a somewhat disappointing 1-1 draw with Werder Bremen in their last game, Bruno Labbadia’s men have an excellent chance of causing an upset, having remained unbeaten in their last five Bundesliga matches.And here, at the Hard Tackle, we take a look at both the sides ahead of this mouthwatering fixture on Saturday.
Jerome Boateng was given the nod ahead of Mats Hummels in the last game and the former Manchester City defender is likely to retain his place in the starting lineup.Boateng certainly has a point to prove after being deemed surplus to requirements for the German national team by Joachim Low earlier this month. He will be partnered by Niklas Sule at the heart of the Bayern backline.
Javi Martinez is almost a guaranteed starter in midfield, having played exceptional football in the past few weeks. The Spaniard will look to keep things tidy in the middle and provide protection for the back four while his midfield partner Thiago Alcantara will be tasked with the responsibility of easing Bayern’s transition from midfield to offence.Thomas Muller could once again be deployed in the right wing slot in the absence of Kingsley Coman and Arjen Robben, meaning Serge Gnabry will start on the opposite flank, with James Rodriguez operating as the attacking midfielder. And finally, the Bayern attack will be led by the one and only Robert Lewandowski.
Team News & Tactics
Bayern Munich could still be without the services of David Alaba, who is a doubt coming into this fixture, having trained by himself on the eve of the game. Therefore, Rafinha is likely to continue deputizing for the Austrian in the left-back slot while Joshua Kimmich will retain his place on the opposite flank.
