For Bayern this season implies a new beginning after the departure of Robert Lewandowski, signed by Barcelona.

The Bavarians, for the moment, have not signed a pure nine as a substitute for Lewandowski. In the German Super Cup, which ended in a 5-3 victory against RB Leipzig, coach Julian Nagelsmann resorted to a system change and played a 4-4-2, which tends to be a 4-2 -2-2, instead of the 4-2-3-1 that

Bayern arrives at the game with two casualties from regular starters. Kingsley Coman is carrying a suspension from the previous season and Leon Goretzka had to undergo knee surgery. Regarding goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer, there is a slight doubt after intestinal problems.

The most likely candidates are the Colombian Rafael Borré, the Argentine Lucas Alario -a new signing from Bayer Leverkusen- and the Danish Jesper Lindström.
