Failed to win for the fifth time in a row last time out. Felix Klaus and Joshua Guilavogui among those set to miss out. Ignacio Camacho confirmed to be out for the indefinite future. Jerome Roussillon, John Anthony Brooks, Marcel Tisserand and Robin Knoche are doubts.
Wolfsburg were outclassed by Werder Bremen in the last round as their good start to the season is now long forgotten following yet another match without a win.
Wolfsburg are now the unenviable holders of the longest run of games in the league without a win as their run is now at 5 matches.
Wolfsburg have only taking the lead in two matches, but have managed to win both of those games. Bruno Labaddia's side perhaps suffer from a lack of confidence as their heads drop far too often when they go behind, when in front they look a different team though.
Wolfsburg have scored 7 of their 10 goals in the second half this season
Long term injured Felix Klaus and Ismail Azzaoui are no closer to returning to first team football. But captain Joshua Guilavogui is back in training this week and is likely to available soon, though this match will come too soon.
Sapnish midfielder Ignacio Camacho has been added back on to the injury list after suffering an ankle muscle injury that will keep him out for the coming weeks at least.
The injuries in midfield are likely to mean Marcel Tisserand will probably play in defensive midfield again in what will be a critical position at the weekend as long as he is passed fit..
John Brooks is also a doubt after returning from international duty with a slight knock. Jerome Roussillon and Robin Knoche have also been carrying knocks but are expected to be in the starting team.
Wolfsburg have lost their last 4 at home against Bayern in all competitions and have not tasted victory in their last 8 in all competitions against the Bavarian side.
