Despite a stark 5-0 home win against Eintracht Frankfurt over the weekend, FC Bayern will not start as Bundesliga leaders in the coming weeks. Today, Tuesday (later here in the live ticker on t-online), the reigning Champions League champion will face Lokomotiv Moscow in Russia. “Loko”, who scored a happy 2-2 win in Salzburg early on, is a blatant outsider. “I fear Lok will have no chance against Bayern in top form,” said former Moscow sporting director Erik Stoffelshaus, the footballer.

Hope in the three-time Russian champions should be awakened by the high stress on Monaco. Bayern will not be in Moscow for 30 hours, after the final whistle on Tuesday evening at 22:40 Russian time, they will return that night. Because for the German record champions there are four away matches in the next twelve days, including the summit against BVB in Dortmund (November 7, 6.30pm / in live ticker on t-online).

But the most important question right now is: how are Bayern going against Moscow?

Alphonso Davies must pass injured

With a tight schedule, coach Hansi Flick understandably relies on rotation in the starting lineup. But injury concerns also force the coach to take action: left-back Alphonso Davies injured against Eintracht Frankfurt.

But Flick and FC Bayern have already shown in recent weeks that they can survive without the consistency and speed of the 19-year-old’s exceptional talent. So again and again the transfer record Lucas Hernandez moved to the left wing. Observers close to the club interpreted Flick’s rotation measure even more, saying that Frenchman Davies had overtaken Davies. It should be clear: with Davies’ injury, Henandez Flick is the number one solution for the left defense.

The return of striker Serge Gnabry is a positive development in Monaco’s personality. The 25-year-old, who passed two negative antigen tests after his “false positives”, returns to Bayern Munich’s attacking winger. For him Douglas Costa should return to sit on the bench.
