As expected, Dutchman Ryan Gravenberch replaces suspended international Leon Goretzka for Bayern Munich’s away game at Werder Bremen. Otherwise, Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel makes no changes on Saturday evening (6:30 p.m. / Sky) compared to the difficult 2-0 win against Hertha BSC a week ago. That means: Thomas Müller and Leroy Sané initially only have one place on the bench. Instead, Tuchel gives Sadio Mané another chance on the offensive.

The hosts have two surprises. Amos Pieper and Romano Schmid play for Milos Veljkovic and Maximilian Philipp. National striker Niclas Füllkrug is out again due to calf problems.

“There will always be that at Bayern Munich,” said Tuchel shortly before kick-off on Sky. “I have decisions to make, I’m a big fan of Thomas.” He “already knows what I have in him,” added Tuchel. “Everything is good.”

The 33-year-old national player Müller is not one of the permanent staff at Tuchel. Among other things, a week ago in the 2-0 win against Hertha BSC, Müller was missing in the starting XI. Basically, all games are “Thomas Müller games”, but he has to make decisions, said Tuchel.
