Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich

Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich

Franck Ribery showed Bayern Munich why the Bundesliga leaders should extend his contract as the 34-year-old netted a superb goal in Friday's 3-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen. Neither of them are in the squad, " said Heynckes, before adding that German worldwide Wagner is the "first option" to replace Lewandowski in attack but far from certain to start.

Both picked up injuries during the Bundesliga's winter break, with Lewandowski struggling with a knee injury, while Hummels is sidelined by an abductor problem.

"They put a lot of pressure on us".

It is also understood that right-back Joshua Kimmich "may not be fit to start" this game, as he continues to recover from a recent illness.

"We're playing against a really strong team".

"We just got back from the training camp and are still very exhausted - on Friday there will be a team with a very different concentration on the pitch", Heynckes told his pre-match press conference.

Heynckes expects the Germany worldwide to fit seamlessly into their system.

Only Manuel Neuer and Thiago Alcantara, both long-term injury absentees, will be missing for their trip to Leverkusen though Heynckes will have new signing Sandro Wagner available, with the forward having joined from Hoffenheim. He can also play well with his back to goal. He's very disciplined and impressed me in Doha.

"I hope to get one, my goal is to stay in Munich as long as possible and to have fun with the fans and team", Ribery replied when asked about a new contract.

Heynckes, 72, coached Leverkusen between 2009 and 2011 and was under no illusions about the hard task presented by his former side, who are buoyed by a 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions which has seen them rise to fourth in the table.

The game will see some of the world's most exciting young players from Leverkusen going up against Bayern's wealth of experience and we are expecting many highlights.

With only two defeats in 17 league games few are betting against Bayern retaining their crown, with chasers RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 lacking their rivals' consistency and squad depth. "It's going to be hard".
