Maxim Leitsch is likely to replace Bell in the lineup. Bo Svensson could also utilise Anton Stach and Marcus Ingvartsen in the team. Finn Dahmen will start in goal and have a back three comprising Andreas Hanche-Olsen, Maxim Leitsch and Alexander Hack. Danny da Costa and Aaron Caricol will feature as wing-backs.

Anton Stach and Leandro Barreiro will stack the central midfield positions and look for compactness in the middle. They will have to support the likes of Angelo Fulgini and Marcus Ingvartsen in the attacking areas. Karim Onisiwo is likely to lead the line for Mainz.

Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Dahmen; Hanche-Olsen, Leitsch, Hack; Da Costa, Stach, Barreiro, Caricol; Fulgini, Ingvartsen; Onisiwo

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich also have plenty of key absentees in the squad through injury issues. Midfielder Leon Goretzka, defenders Noussair Mazraoui and Lucas Hernandez, captain Manuel Neuer and attacker Sadio Mane are all missing from action. Bouna Sarr is also out of contention.

 

Meanwhile, midfielder Marcel Sabitzer is a transfer target for Manchester United and did not train on Tuesday. He might move on and hence remain absent from the squad on Wednesday. Therefore, considering the injury to Goretzka and Sabitzer’s situation, Joshua Kimmich and Ryan Gravenberch could form a midfield partnership.

Nagelsmann could use the cup clash to bring new signings to the fore. He could use the latest arrival, Joao Cancelo and Daley Blind, in full-back roles. Dayot Upamecano and Matthijs de Ligt will form the central defensive partnership.

Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman can take up wide areas, while Jamal Musiala could feature between the wingers as Bayern’s No.10. Mathys Tel should start up front and lead the line for Nagelsmann’s side.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Cancelo, de Ligt, Upamecano, Blind; Kimmich, Gravenberch; Gnabry, Musiala, Coman; Tel

Key Stats

  • Julian Nagelsmann has never won the DFB Pokal as a manager.
